On track for the Bupa 10,000 run on 27th May in London are runners Ahmad Riaz and Raphael Zak who are racing to transform the lives of disadvantaged people in South Asia.
Starting and finishing on the Mall, our runners will traverse the course likely to be used in the 2012 Olympics Marathon.
“I decided to run this year’s BUPA 10K to support some of the most deprived communities in South Asia,” said runner Ahmad Riaz. “The British Asian Trust and its charity partners are doing some wonderful work in the Indian sub-continent as well as in UK to bring lasting change to the lives of poor people through access to education, health and livelihoods,” he said. Ahmad is particularly impressed with the work of Trust charity partner Katha. “Katha works in the Delhi slums to ensure that children get a high quality education to overcome poverty for themselves, their families and their communities,” he said.

Raphael Zak said he feels honoured to run for The British Asian Trust. “I was keen to support The British Asian Trust after hearing about the life changing work they do across South Asia,” said Raphael. “ Every penny donated is channelled into worthwhile projects and even small donations go far in helping people to work their way out of poverty. I look forward to my contribution towards helping to make a difference.”

Sukhi Vig, Trust events manager said: “We would like to thank Ahmad and Raphael for choosing to run to raise funds for our life-changing work. We appreciate your efforts on our behalf. Good luck and best wishes for 27th May.”
