This is My Story


Three years ago, a 125kg Khaled was confronted by a doctor with a likely future of diabetes, high cholesterol and a number of medical issues associated with diabetes. Humiliated and embarrassed, this was a defining moment in Khaled’s life. His grandfather had died of cancer and in 2003, Khaled’s father HE Prof. Jamal Sanad Al Suwaidi was diagnosed with T cell lymphoma. After a long 3-year battle, his Excellency was given the ‘all-clear’.

Khaled has worked tirelessly to improve his lifestyle, get fit, eat healthily and has lost over 50kg.

Having never run a marathon, Khaled decided he wanted to do this personal challenge, which will not only support Rahma but raise awareness about the risks of obesity and an unhealthy lifestyle.
