Trelleborg supports Heroes of Hope

Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation in Dubai recently sponsored over 400 uniforms and sunglasses to the participating Heroes of Hope children and coaches - a non-profit group to develop sporting, social and interpersonal skills for people of determination.

Having been a Heroes of Hope volunteer as a “Coach of Hope” for a number of years, Office Manager at Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation in Dubai, Michelle Christie, participated in the Skechers performance five-kilometer fun run last December. This is a Heroes of Hope family event where mum, dad and the kids ran side by side as a team. The event was held at the Ripe Market in the Dubai Police Academy allowing for an entertaining route through the academy and the barracks.

Michelle was joined by Hollie Murphy, founder of Heroes of Hope, and Ghani Suleman, Dubai’s running legend and ultra-Marathon legend, running alongside attending children and “Athletes of Hope”. Both Hollie and Ghani took part in the 10 kilometer run.

In addition to the run, the Ripe Market which brings the community together to support local homegrown businesses, provided attendees with the opportunity to visit Santa’s grotto, purchase real Christmas trees, make wreaths and decorate gingerbread houses.
