A friend of mine contacted me, on behalf of Meghan O'Connell, an American student in Massachusetts, regarding a 5K race that she is planning in order to benefit the Morocco Medical Equipment project, a project aimed at providing refurbished medical equipment to Moroccan clinics and hospitals in need at no cost to the receiving facility. One hundred percent of the profits from the race supports the project, which is being coordinated by an inspiring Moroccan Professor and philanthropist in Boston, Mr. Aziz El Madi.
The race, called Round the Riverbend 5K, begins at 10:00 a.m this Saturday, April 4th, at 1255 Soldiers field road in Brighton MA.

I know this is a late notice for those in Greater Boston, but if you can make it that make a difference inshallah.
