This issue’s pick for our local hero is the inspiring Emirati athlete Dr. Khaled Jamal Al Suwaidi, who has come a long way in his transformation from overweight to fit. Recently, he ran from Fujairah to Abu Dhabi – in just 3 days!
After losing almost 60 kgs of weight, Khaled decided to give himself a new challenge. In support of cancer charity Rahma, Khaled ran a distance of 327 kilometres from the Emirate of Fujairah to the capital in 80 hours.
He’s an inspiring figure whose determination and motivation shows how a positive mental mind set can make a difference.
