The Dr. Hakeem Abdul-Karim One For All Foundation has as it's charitable purpose the support of early childhood dental screenings and preventative care, as well as other programs to address the needs of disadvantaged children. This fund raising effort is to expand the resources available to continue the work Doc was so passionate about. Please give generously.
On Tuesday, July 21st, Dr. Hakeem Abdul-Karim, DDS was out running late in the evening as part of his training for an upcoming half-marathon when he suffered a massive heart attack and died on the side of the road just four days before his 42nd birthday.
Doc was a man who loved people, especially disadvantaged children, and he loved the Lord with all of his heart. For many years, Doc gave generously of his time and his treasure in support of those passions. About two years ago, Doc established a private non-profit foundation to ensure that his passion would survive beyond his lifetime.
To everyone who knew Doc, he was the sweetest, most gentle and loving man you could possibly know. He always had an encouraging word, a big smile and a willingness to lend a helping hand to anyone at any time. He is deeply missed and will never be forgotten.
