2nd Annual Run for Windsor

 

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at in Windsor, alongside the City of Windsor and the Windsor Regional Hospital (WRH), is excited to hold its 2nd annual Run for Windsor on May 12, 2018 along the scenic Waterfront Trail. The proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards supporting the future Windsor Regional Urgent Care Centre. The 1st Run for Windsor event, held in May 2017, successfully raised tens of thousands of dollars through the support of approximately 400 participants. It is only with your help that we can make this year’s event even bigger and better! So whether you are a professional marathon runner, a jogger who enjoys staying active, or looking for a fun family event for a good cause, we invite you to take part in this fundraiser to support our local community. Bring everyone you know to run, jog, or walk your way to more accessible healthcare!

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at has long served the Windsor-Essex community, which its members have called home for generations. Community members are committed to the development and future of this region and are proud to connect with and support local organizations whenever possible, which include joint initiatives with the Essex Regional Conservation Authority, the Downtown Mission, and various other faith communities. We are proud to be part of the rich cultural fabric of Windsor, which is defined by its commitment to respect, diversity, and the spirit of helping and uplifting one another.

The community’s motto, “Love for All, Hatred for None,” encourages members to look after the interests of all members of society. It was this spirit that led to the nationwide launch of “Run for Canada” charity events 13 years ago. Each of these events, held from Calgary to Vaughan, have cumulatively raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for healthcare initiatives in their respective communities. Run for Windsor is proud to continue this tradition. Please be sure to join us for this year’s Run for Windsor. Spread the word and register by visiting www.runforwindsor.com.

Run for your community – Run for accessible healthcare – Run for Windsor!
