Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my Ramadan challenge in 2023. ❤️❤️❤️
I wanted to do something this Ramadan to help make a small difference to those who do not have the luxury of regular food on their tables. Children are often the most vulnerable and innocent victims of their circumstances in the midst of poverty.
For the majority of you reading this,you and I do not have to worry where our next meal is coming from or how will I be able to feed my family? It’s something we take for granted but unfortunately not everyone has this privilege.
I have decided to take part in The Ramadan Challenge with Charity Right.
By taking part, I'll be joining a global community taking a step to a healthier and more active Ramadan.
My original challenge was run 150km which I have completed on the 10th of April 2023, I have decided to push on and the new target is 200km in the blessed month of Ramadan @Ramadan challenge 2023
My Ramadan challenge is to run (150k) now 200km during Ramadan whilst fasting ( that’s no food or water from pre sunrise to sunset) in the month of Ramadan ( 30 days). That’s the same as running from Manchester to Birmingham….now Bradford to Peterborough. It will be challenging but I think it’s doable and I’m ready for the challenge.The plan is to run 5 km every day from around an hour before sunset and the time I can break my fast. I have always enjoyed running but I have never ran whilst fasting before so it will be an interesting new experience.
I’m editing the page on the 10th April 2023…After 16 runs in 19 days I can tell you that fasting and running are definitely challenging and it’s the amazing kindness of families and friends and strangers that have donated so far that has kept me going and pushing myself.
But my challenge is nothing compared to the challenge school children in Yemen, Malawi, Sudan , Pakistan, Bangladesh and many others face on a daily basis day after day. PLEASE DONATE WHATEVER YOU CAN AND SHARE THE LINK WITH YOUR CONTACTS AND SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS.
But it's not just about personal goals - I'm also fundraising to support a special cause that's important to me.
The funds raised through The Ramadan Challenge will go towards providing school meals for children and young people around the world. IT IS ZAKAT APPLICABLE FOR ANYONE WHO DONATES
This is a critical need, as it not only provides them with the sustenance they need to stay healthy, but it also incentivises parents to send their children to school, giving them a chance to escape the cycle of poverty.
Remember, this project is Zakat eligible, and your donation can make a big impact:
£13 = one child is fed for an entire month!
£75 = one child is fed for 6 months!
£150 = one child is fed for 1 whole year!
£300 = 2 children supported with regular meals for 1 whole year!
Thank you for your support. Let's make The Ramadan Challenge a massive success!
