Perkins Great Eastern Run

Half-Marathon

We want to congratulate Nathan Read on behalf of Muslim Deaf UK, who ran the Perkins Great Eastern Run 2013 Half-Marathon on Sunday 13th October 2013. He ran with such determination and commitment in the miserable weather! He raised an amazing £200 that will be used towards helping Deaf people access Islam. 

The Muslim Deaf UK team went to Peterborough to support Nathan for his efforts. There was also a Deaf brother Qadeer Hussain who ran for the local National Deaf Children's Society to raise money for local Deaf people. 

Owais Murad, Chairman of Muslim Deaf UK congratulated them on their endeavor, his comment - "Just came back from supporting Nathan Read run for the Perkins Great Eastern Run on behalf of Muslim Deaf UK. He ran with such determination and commitment in the miserable weather, I would like to congratulate him for completing the staggering 13 miles! He almost looked like he was going to collapse, May Allah reward him and accept his efforts."
