Nihad Cheraga, a biomedical engineering Ph.D. who is the business development manager of Times High Tech Park in Guangming District, swapped her formal attire for a volunteer's white jacket yesterday morning, joining 3,358 other volunteers at the 2023 Shenzhen Marathon as the race kicked off at 7:30 a.m. in the Civic Center in Futian District. The Algerian energetically manned refreshment stations giving out water and snacks, cheering on runners and diligently cleaned up the route after the marathon's whirlwind.
