Overs many years and decades, sanctions and wars caused nothing but deaths and the spread of diseases in the great land of Iraq. The children in Iraq suffered the most, as they became the main target for diseases and malformations. As we head towards better times in Iraq, new borns and young children are still suffering from the remains of the war, many of which do not have access to proper medications, or the slightest health attention. With no proper health facilities that cater to the poor and the needy, children with malformations are left unattended, and even those that require a rather simple procedure are left to suffer and face eventual death. 

Last year a runner from the community took part in the Toronto Goodlife Fitness Marathon to raise funds and awareness for Iraqi children with congenital heart problems. Tareek Al Zuhur Community (http://tazc.org/) works to provide treatment affected children by sending them to a heart centre in India to have surgery. The surgeries are done by the) famous Cardiac surgeon and philanthropist, Dr. Devi Shetty http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devi_Shetty

This year we will be running again as team in the half-marathon and 5km runs, to spread the word further and reach out to more donors. On May 4th, 2014 we will be taking part in the GoodLife Fitness Toronto Marathon in support of the great efforts TAZC puts in to treat children in need of immediate treatment. We will be running the Half-Marathon and 5km runs as a team in hopes we can raise as much funds as possible to help in however little we can the magnificent work TAZC provides to affected Iraqi children and give these chidlren the treatment they need. 

Your help and support was being amazing, and this year as we grew and our commitments grew with us, we hope that your support has grown with it as well. We kindly ask you to contribute in however much you can, and by spreading the word. 

Each and everyone of us, TAZC and the children thank you so very much.
