Syed Akram is training night and day to prepare for the immense task that faces him this Arba’een, when he’ll be running from Najaf to Karbala in just 14 hours.

JustGiving – Syed Akram’s N2K Run
He’s raising money for the Noor Orphans Fund Education Scheme, which helps impoverished orphans stay at school and complete their education. Too often orphans are excluded from school because their poverty means they can’t afford the requisite uniforms and stationery. By providing them with these basic amenities we ensure that the orphans can stay at school and build brighter futures for themselves. Click here to read more.
