BENEFITING: OMID FOUNDATION USA
EVENT DATE: Jul 31, 2016
Dr. Omid Zamani is a medical doctor voluntarily working with some charities and CSOs in Iran including OMID Foundation. Dr. Zamani has done running workouts for the last 2 years and his best half-marathon record is 1:53:00, he is planning to finish San Francisco Marathon in less than 4.5 hours. He is married, has a son and works for the Global Fund for AIDS, TB and Malaria as a technical officer.
All money raised will be used for improving the lives of the young women at the OMID Center in Tehran. The OMID foundation takes some of the most abused and neglected girls and through a holistic approach helps them achieve self-awareness, self-determination and self-sufficiency, and in the process empowers them to turn their dreams and aspirations into reality. Not an easy task considering the young women who come to their care are typically runaways from abusive homes, often suffering from mental health and emotional difficulties, mostly stemming from psychological, physical, and sexual abuse.
Omid pays for all his expenses, so, as it will be reflected on your receipt, 100% of your donation goes to OMID Foundation, and is tax deductible. Any amount helps, and is greatly appreciated.
