BENEFITING: Fasting 5k Inc
In 2013, a local Boston nonprofit was lacking resources to fulfill it’s mission of children’s education and sought help from the community. While breaking their fast during a night in Ramadan, a group of seven friends thought about how they could help. It occurred to them that they could capture the spirit of the month by building community, promoting charitable giving and helping those in need. Combined with the age old Boston tradition of running, Fasting5k was born!
Since then, F5k has helped nonprofits and communities across the country and abroad to further their missions of youth development. From education, poverty & homelessness to mental health, F5k has raised hundreds of thousands through grassroots volunteer efforts to bring communities together for good.
This year, F5k is focused on partnering with youth civic engagement programs in Boston, D.C., San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Chicago, Columbus, Detroit, Atlanta, New York and Toronto. We’re excited to build on the political energy of today to build the leaders of tomorrow.
We hope you’ll join us!
