Third annual Fast-A-Thon for charity Export this event to calendar

Thursday, June 23, 2016 — 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM EDT

Would you be willing to go hungry for a day so someone else doesn't have to? Fast from sunrise to sunset and then join us for a free dinner, and donate the money you would have spent on food that day to charity.

Our third annual Fast-a-Thon is here. Muslims worldwide fast during the entire month of Ramadan every year. But on June 23rd, 2016, we’re asking ALL OF YOU to fast ONE day to raise awareness for hunger and raise money for local shelters!

Hunger is universal – it is everywhere around us – and yet, sometimes we fail to see it! At Fast-a-Thon, we ask you all to take a pledge to fast from dawn till dusk, donate the money you would’ve spent on food that day & experience what it is like to go hungry for a day! All this money is going to be donated to local homeless shelters.

This year the Muslim Student Association and Conrad Grebel College are partnering to host the Fast-A-Thon together, build bridges of understanding among Muslim and Christian students, and showcase the plight of the homeless and impoverished in the KW area.

FREE DINNER and evening program will be provided starting at 7pm that day to all those who fast! Help the UW MSA and Conrad Grebel College raise awareness about poverty and homelessness, increase your knowledge about the merits of fasting, learn about Ramadan and Muslims, and get free food at the end!
