Dubai, January 17, 2016: For the third consecutive year, Xpress Money, one of the world’s most dependable money transfer brands, has raised funds for the Special Needs Future Development Center (SNF) through the Dubai Marathon, held on Friday, January 20th, 2017.

This initiative was driven through the brand’s CSR platform H.O.P.E, an acronym for ‘Helping Our People and Environment’ that has been instrumental in launching a plethora of educational, inclusion and charitable initiatives to help improve the quality of life of marginalized audiences. H.O.P.E is active in many of Xpress Money’s key markets, and cumulatively assisted thousands of people through its initiatives since its launch in 2013.

“We are proud of our tradition of raising funds for the SNF Center every year, which does a brilliant job of supporting families that have adults with special needs. It’s particularly fitting in 2017, given that the UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan has marked this the ‘Year of Giving.’ We’re also very pleased at the uptake this initiative has seen within the Xpress Money team this year; the number of runners has more than doubled over last year,” said Ashwin Gedam, Vice President - Global Marketing, Xpress Money.

43 members of the Xpress Money team voluntarily participated in the marathon this year, up from 25 in 2016 and 10 in 2015. They were joined by two doctors from NMC Hospital and renowned Radio Jockey (RJ) Vineet from a popular Radio station. As a prelude to the run, Xpress Money’s employees spoke about what makes them run through a series of videos which featured some students from the SNF Center as well that were highly appreciated by the audience. The brand also conducted fitness tests for each of the participants, in association with the team’s official medical partner, NMC Hospital – Dubai Investments Park..

Xpress Money has been supporting the SNF Center for the past three years through a host of activities such as sponsoring calendars, purchasing paintings created by students with special needs, and donating equipment and laptops to the center.
