    Chairman, Abu Dhabi Terry Fox Committee
    Abu Dhabi, UAE.

    Dear Farid,

    What more can we say about your incredible achievement and that of your hard working committee and all the supporters of The Terry Fox Run in Abu Dhabi?

    I have recently read the following meaningful words and I am reminded of them as I write this e-mail to you.
    "You have not lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you"

    All of you have contributed so much to help ease the suffering that cancer causes.
    You will never meet the people you have helped but without a doubt their gratitude will be quietly expressed in their hearts.

    I want to again express to you our immense gratitude for helping to make the 2008 Terry Fox Run in Abu Dhabi such a spectacular success.

    Again please allow me to say that it was an inspiring and wonderful experience to work with you.
    You are so thorough, organized and hard working. The Foundation is so fortunate to have you supporting our cause and our gratitude knows no bounds.

    Maybe one day you will come to Canada and I will have the pleasure of meeting you and thanking you personally

    Thank you Farid from the bottom of my heart.

    With warm regards,
