RunKuwait 5K and 10K charity run or walk is the Fawzia Sultan Healthcare Network’s (formerly known as Fawzia Sultan Rehabilitation Institute) annual fundraising charity event that helps bind our community together through a fun and healthy event to raise money for children with disabilities who do not have access to appropriate healthcare.
Since 2013, funds raised from the annual RunKuwait event is channeled towards the Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center (CERC) which serves children with disabilities. With the help of race participants and the RunKuwait sponsors, as well as other corporate and individual donors, Fawzia Sultan Healthcare Network (FSHN) has been able to provide free services to 20% of the children, and to deeply subsidize the care of 60% of our young people.
CERC’s team of compassionate, highly-skilled clinicians provides free and low-cost rehabilitative care for children with a disability who have been unable to gain access to needed treatment. CERC’s on-site team includes pediatric physiotherapists, speech and communication disorders therapists, occupational therapists, and clinical psychologists.
FSHN strives to reach more and more vulnerable children every year and your help will make this possible when you participate in RunKuwait.
About the charity:
A yearly initiative that is currently in its 8th year, RunKuwait once again is looking to raise awareness and funds to support the Children Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center (CERC) and children with disabilities across Kuwait. Last year, RunKuwait had the largest event to date with more than 2,300 participants showing their support for this worthy cause.
The race funds are used to help families get much-needed treatment at a subsidized lower cost, or sometimes for free”
FSHN is motivated to go bigger and make this year’s RunKuwait the best one yet. The reason being that the number of children who need treatment is still large and CERC needs to be empowered to continue providing specialized quality care for children who otherwise may not get access to the care they need.
The raised funds are used to help families facing financial difficulties, helping them get much-needed treatment at a subsidized lower cost, or even for free in some cases. In its seventh edition, RunKuwait is offering two chipped distances – 5km and 10km – and is open to people of all ages and fitness levels. Although RunKuwait is a great opportunity for experienced athletes and competitive runners to challenge themselves, running is not a must. For those unable to run, they can opt to walk, jog or just stroll – as long as they participate in some way to support this great cause.
Fawzia Sultan Healthcare Network (formerly known as Fawzia Sultan Rehabilitation Institute) was founded in Kuwait in 2006 as a non-profit, multi-disciplinary healthcare institution. Fawzia Sultan Healthcare Network (FSHN) was established with its mission to be a holistic medical institution providing high quality multi-disciplinary services, whilst also serving as a regional hub for health, research, education & advocacy. FSHN houses highly specialized and intensively trained teams of physicians and clinicians, providing exceptional quality of healthcare services and compassionate care across a number of specialty areas including: family medicine, pediatric rehabilitation (at its Children Evaluation & Rehabilitation Centre: CERC), preventative medicine, psychology, physiotherapy & occupational therapy, speech therapy, neurology, elderly care, women’s health and research and education.
FSHN is a firm believer in community outreach, capacity building, and volunteer initiatives as key components to promoting health & wellness across Kuwait’s society. Not only does the organization run a number of highly visible community initiatives (such as RunKuwait), but FSHN is also a prominent member of Kuwait’s thriving civil society, partnering with many other non-profits and NGOs in Kuwait.
