Walkathon 2013

On Saturday the  20th of April 2013,  Majlis Ansarullah , an auxillary wing of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community  once  again  were out in full force  at the Barry Curtis Park  to help support  Humanity First  and  the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind.

This organisation within the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community NZ organised a 10km walkathon as a way to fund raise for a worthy cause.  National President, Iqbal Mohammed in his closing remarks and vote of thanks  said “…We decided to use the Islamic teachings of helping our people and our neighbours first. The Royal NZ Foundation of the Blind being our neighbours became the obvious choice.” 

Though heavy rain was predicted, by the grace of Allah, the weather cleared and  more than  40  men and woman began this worthy walk for humanity. It lasted just under two hours.

The Ahmadiyya Community the world over has  a history of engaging in community events and serving humanity.  The walkathon fund raising event  since its inception in May 2009,   has continued to grow in recognition with the whole community supporting this activity .   The funds raised will be shared between  Humanity First   and  RNZFB.  However,  a larger percentage will be  given to the The Royal NZ Foundation of the Blind .
