Event description

Description

Get excited for the Ramadan event of the year! Ten cities and hundreds of athletes will embrace the spirit of the month by fasting, raising charitable funds and building community for good while taking part in our annual 5k event. This year, Fasting5k is working with organizations focused on youth civic engagement to help educate and empower our civic and political leaders of tomorrow. Now more than ever, we must capture the energy of the times and ensure our youth are ready to change the world for the better.


The New York team will be fundraising for DRUM. DRUM - South Asian Organizing Center (formerly Desis Rising Up and Moving) is a multigenerational, membership led organization of low-wage South Asian immigrant workers and youth in New York City. Founded in 2000, DRUM has mobilized and built the leadership of thousands of low-income, South Asian immigrants to lead social and policy change that impacts their own lives- from immigrant rights to education reform, civil rights, and worker’s justice. Their membership of over 2,400 adults, youth, and families is multigenerational and represents the diaspora of the South Asian community – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Guyana, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Trinidad. In over a decade, they have built a unique model of South Asian undocumented workers, women, and youth led organizing for rights and justice from the local to the global.


Don't miss out! Come meet some great people, have lots of fun and make change together! We look forward to seeing you there.

***Participants are asked to raise a minimum of $250 to benefit our fundraising partner***
