12 Challenges for Farha

Akid Zolkifli

My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Farhas12Challenges

2016 marks 4 years of the passing of my sister Nufarha (known as Farha). From birth she suffered from an Atrial Septal Defect (ASD), more commonly known as ‘hole in the heart’ which meant that she was unable to efficiently pump oxygenated blood around her body. However, although Farha was only in our lives for a short time, she consistently and bravely fought beyond doctors predictions and lived until her 11th birthday. She was shy, sweet and very curious girl and not a day goes by that I don’t miss my youngest sister dearly.

At the time of her passing I was unable to see her and have always regretted it and so in her memory I am undergoing 12 challenges in 12 months to raise money for two charities; The British Heart Foundation and Spurgeons.

The British Heart Foundation funds research, education, care and awareness campaigns aimed to prevent heart diseases in humans.

Spurgeons is a charity which I volunteer with to ensure that every child has an opportunity for childhood and an equal chance to fulfil their dreams.

As you can see most of the challenges are aligned with some sort of cardio exercise and as someone whose previous hobby was lifting heavy things and dropping them again (not you cheerleaders), I can safely say that these races will be TOUGH. But why donate if it’s not challenging right?

One important consideration is that currently I am doing all these SOLO, so if anyone would like to join and team up on some of the challenges whether it be wrestling through the mud, pounding the pavement or simply cheering me on I would appreciate the  any help. 

Just send me a message or email akid.zolkifli@hotmail.com


Sincerely Thank You for reading this essay I am extremely grateful for those donations and support in memory of Farha. Every little helps and you can make a huge difference in individuals lives.  

Insane and incredible Love
