Preparations are underway for the sixth annual "Pulse 5K" charity run to raise funds for Myschoolpulse, a Lebanese NGO dedicated to providing education for child cancer patients.Three events are slated to take place – a 5-kilometer run, a 5-kilometer walk, and a "1K Run with Mom" for kids and their mothers.The organization relies on donations from the event to run its operations and cater to the needs of child cancer patients undergoing long periods of treatment in hospital.Drawing from a network of 14 professional educators, the NGO has been able to provide an education for 300 patients since its inception.It employs teachers in six hospitals across Lebanonwhere education is provided free of charge. When Nassif returned to Lebanon, she found the option to pursue an education was not available to children undergoing prolonged treatment in hospitals.
