Simon Khayat - Half Marathon Des Sables

On the 24th of September 2018 I will be running a 120 km multi stage marathon (HMDS) in the island of Fuerteventura (Canary Islands) along with over 500 international enthusiasts over the period of four days. This will be my first Ultra Multi Stage Marathon and I wanted to take the opportunity to raise funds for the Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL).

I lost my brother due to cancer and I know what it is like to look into the eyes of a treated patient. The money raised through this cause will help a child suffering from this ugly disease by paying for the cost of treatment and medications and maybe put a smile once again on this hopeful kid’s angelic face.

Acknowledging that mental preparation is the most important factor to complete such adventures, your support would greatly boost his stamina whilst at the same time help financing a great cause!
