WHAT IS FASTING 5K?
Fasting 5K is a grassroots organization that aims to create a network of communities that walk/run for one cause through the spirit of fasting, running and charitable giving during the month of Ramadan. Each year a variety of American cities and Toronto participate to raise money for important causes in their cities and abroad.
Since its inception in 2013, Fasting 5K has raised over $300,000.00!
WHO WILL WE BE FUNDRAISING FOR in 2019?
INTERNATIONAL CHARITY PARTNER:
IMANA: SaveSmile Surgical Mission
30% of all donations from each city running the Fasting 5K will go towards our international charity partner IMANA, towards their SaveSmile Surgical Mission. IMANA will perform cleft lip surgeries on small children and youth in Khartoum, Sudan. IMANA Medical Relief has been undertaking this for 9 years now and has done 1,388 successful surgeries so far.
LOCAL CHARITY PARTNER:
We will be partnering with Islamic Relief USA this year to help fundraising in putting together a Eid celebration party for children with special needs and their families. It is open to kids of all faiths where they get to spend a day filled with activities tailored for their needs and abilities with special needs professionals supporting the event.
