Making the UAE a frontrunner in life-changing healthcare improvements

Al Jalila Foundation is championing long-term improvements in healthcare to transform the lives of people in the UAE and beyond. Our not-for-profit organisation was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on 1 April 2013 to support medical research to improve the health of the nation.

We work closely with philanthropists, strategic partners, sponsors and the wider community to tackle the most pressing healthcare challenges such as diabetes, cancer and genetic disorders amongst others. Our diverse programmes help to ensure that no member of our society will be left behind in the race for a better quality of life. We follow a holistic approach focused on early diagnosis, public awareness, advocacy and research in order to deliver widespread benefits.

Run for a cause. Do your bit for charity and run for a reason!

Deciding which charity to run for in a race

Whether you are a runner with your own place in a race, or are perhaps looking to secure a spot running with a charity, there's no denying that there are many worthy charities out there – all of whom could really do with your help. Charity runners provide a significant amount of income for charities and by accepting a place you're entering into a firm commitment to raise the agreed amount of funds. It is not one to be taken lightly and it worth bearing in mind the charity will be relying on those running funds.

The benefits of running a race for charity

Though running a race can be a great way of improving your health and fitness and doing wonders for your self-confidence, running on behalf of a charity is also a hugely popular option. Running a race for charity allows you to raise important funds whilst getting a great workout. Here's our guide on running for a charity in a race. But with so many worthy charities to choose from, how do you decide which charity to run for? When deciding on the charity that you want to run for, think about the points below – each of which will help you get closer to making this all important running decision.

  • Think about whether you have any real affinity with a particular charity or whether you know much about their work.
  • Consider a cause that is close to your heart – it may be that you have personal or family reasons why you should run for a particular charity.
  • Maybe you know someone that is already running for a charity and you would like to team up together on race day.
  • Consider what you believe in and select a cause you feel strongly about. It will prove invaluable when you are trying to persuade people to hand over their hard-earned cash.
