Running BMO Vancouver Marathon for Neekoo Philanthropic Society

I'm very fortunate to be running the BMO Vancouver Marathon this month and this year I'm combining two of my passions (Running + Giving Back) to raise funds and awareness for Neekoo Philanthropic Society

Neekoo Philanthropic Society 

Neekoo is a registered not-for-profit society founded by a group of professionals in 2012 living in Vancouver with the goal of raising funds to assist deserving post-secondary students of Iranian heritage in need of financial support to pursue their dreams. These students are required to be registered in an established BC educational institution as well as able to demonstrate that they need financial assistance.

I've been part of the Neekoo committee since 2013 and I'm very proud for being part of a team that has supported so many students in our community through the years. 

Neekoo 2021 Grant Application was launched earlier this month and we are currently in the process of receiving applications. Due to the continued devastating impact of COVID-19 on top of the sanctions, the students in our community desperately need our help.

The more funds we raise the more students we'll be able to help.

BMO Marathon 

I have been running the BMO Marathon (Half/Full) every year since 2009 when I did my first Half Marathon.

While the actual race is canceled for the second year due to the Pandemic, the runners are still given the opportunity to register and run on their own during the month of May. I started the month by running the BMO Half and I'm finishing it by running the Full Marathon. 

I hope you join me in raising funds to help the students in our community. Any amount is appreciated. 

Even a little can go a long way.
