Run For Emtesal- Breast Cancer Memorial Fund

My name is Mazen Brisha and I am a 20-year-old Egyptian currently studying in Halifax, Canada. I am starting this fundraiser in loving memory of my grandmother, Emtesal Ali,  who passed away a year ago after a decade long fight with breast cancer. All funds collected will be donated to the Baheya Foundation for early detection & treatment, located in Egypt. The Baheya Foundation is an institution and hospital, based in Al Giza that specializes in breast cancer awareness, early detection, and treatment for tens of thousands of women across Egypt. This non-profit organization offers free medical support to all breast cancer patients with no social or financial prejudice.

Over the course of December leading up to the new year, I have decided to challenge myself by running, walking, or cycling 1km for each 10CAD donated to the fundraiser (30DHS). This year has been incredibly difficult for so many, and I hope that this fundraiser can make 2021 just that little bit easier for some.
