Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

The Prom­e­nade, Kuwait's neigh­bor­hood mall, has cel­e­brated the suc­cess of the re­cently con­cluded Run Q8, a char­i­ta­ble ini­tia­tive that sup­ports the Chil­dren's Eval­u­a­tion and Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Unit, un­der Fawzia Sul­tan Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion In­sti­tute, a non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion.

The sixth an­nual 10km and 5km runs, which at­tracted more than 2,000 run­ners, saw The Prom­e­nade sup­port­ing as a Plat­inum Spon­sor. In the run up to the event, The Prom­e­nade served as the col­lec­tion point for bib num­bers and t-shirts, and ac­tively en­cour­aged staff, friends, fam­ily and the wider com­mu­nity to sign up for the run. Var­i­ous stores across the mall also pro­vided gifts that were awarded to win­ners of the races.

"We are com­mit­ted to ini­tia­tives such as the re­cent Run Q8, which not only sup­ports the wider com­mu­nity, but go fur­ther in of­fer­ing much needed care to those who re­quire it. The Prom­e­nade is a char­ity mall and along­side our own in­ter­nal ac­tiv­i­ties, we are a keen am­bas­sador to raise aware­ness of wor­thy causes," Alyah Al-Jasser, Al Oth­man Port­fo­lio Mar­ket­ing Man­ager said.

Owned by the Ab­dulla Ab­dul­latif Al Oth­man Char­ity Fund which pro­vides funds for build­ings mo­ques, schools, as well as help­ing the or­phans and fam­i­lies in need, the Prom­e­nade is also home of the Prom­e­nade Cul­ture Cen­tre, the cul­tural arm of the mall. It is a multi-pur­pose de­vel­op­ment, cre­ated to act as a can­vas for artis­tic ex­pres­sion in Kuwait. Its mis­sion is to ac­tively en­cour­age and host a va­ri­ety of artis­tic and cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties for the com­mu­nity.
