Event description
UM-Dearborn MSA is proud to bring back the annual Fast-a-thon. Our goal is to truly make an impact in our community. And we need your help!

About this Event

What is Fast-a-thon?

The concept of the Fast-a-thon comes from decades of MSA tradition. The Muslim Students Association (MSA) is a student-run organization on campus dedicated to bridging the gap between the Muslim and non-Muslim population on the University of Michigan - Dearborn campus and in the community. This event is an example of uniting all types of individuals for a philanthropic cause. The reward that comes from the Fast-a-Thon is two-fold. Not only have you sacrificed for the sake of those less fortunate, but you will also be gaining a sense of self-fulfillment by fasting. Because the Islamic concept of fasting requires refraining from consuming food and drink from sunrise to sunset, the MSA has adopted this notion for the Fast-a-thon cause.

The Impact

Not only will you be taking part in one of the biggest events on the UM-Dearborn campus, but you will be directly making an impact on fighting hunger. Last year, the MSA was able to raise $2400 for charity! As a remake of our classic Fast-a-thon program, Fast-a-thon has the following goals:

  • Allow people to experience the Islamic tradition of fasting for a day
  • Emphasize the urgency of hunger issues around the world, specifically in the Detroit metro area
  • Actively combat hunger by raising money for local, regional, and international charities addressing hunger issues

100% of the proceeds from the event will go to the two charities: Helping Hand and buildOn.
