A few months ago, Jassin and I were inspired by a friend to train for a triathlon. We were out of shape, couldn’t swim, were not able to run a 5k, and thought we could never make it. Slowly but surely we made progress and signed up for a variety of races. We still can’t believe that we are actually consistent with our training, and are very eager to achieve our goal to become triathletes. As a bonus, we have a lot of fun working out together, and are very happy with our new, healthy lifestyle.
We have decided to choose a charity called “Dar Bouidar” to benefit from our new competitive spirit for upcoming races in 2015. We all know that exercising makes people happy and why should we not share our happiness and help others who need it the most. While poverty exists in many parts of the world, abandoned children in Morocco caught our attention since Jassin grew up there and we still travel to Morocco to visit our family. More importantly, we care about others. It is not the fault of these abandoned children that they have been left alone. They deserve a chance to experience a healthy and happy life, and they can if we all help them.
Thank you for your support,
Martha & Jassin
