Event description

Description

Get Outdoors, Get Active!

We are super excited for the very first 5 or 1K Run, Walk or Wheel for CHARITY! All proceeds will be going to Emergency Relief for children in Myanmar/Burma and Yemen! You don't have to be super fit to participate, you just need to have a big heart!
So pretty much.... GET EXCITED!!! AND SPREAD THE WORD! U of T's *very own* 5/1K FOR CHARITY!
Registration to participate is completely FREE. There is a suggested donation of $5-$10 or PWYC (pay what you can). Link to register below:

General Donation Link (to share with friends, family, colleagues, social online and offline networks): https://www.launchgood.com/project/university_of_torontostgeorge_campus#!/
We would like to point out that we value other forms of participation (aside from doing the 5/1K) for example participating as a staff member for the day, so please get involved on this day in any way you can to help raise money for children all around the world! All proceeds will go to Islamic Relief Canada on the above mentioned projects. We would also like to point out that there is a 1K option for individuals who would like to complete a shorter route and we will also have chairs and "stations" around the track with cold water to refresh, and take a mini break, if needed!
If you have any accesAbility related needs, please contact outreach@uoftmsa.com
This event is in collaboration with the University of Toronto Students' Union (UTSU).
SHARE AWAY, AND WIDELY! MUCH LOVE!
Peace!
***NOTE***: The Muslim Students’ Association at the University of Toronto acknowledge that our office and student club operate on sacred territorial land of the Nishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee people. This land is also the territory of the Huron-Wendat, Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. The legacy of this meeting place, where people have gathered for 15,000 years, should inform our course, especially how we think about anti-oppression and allyship. We want to honour this land’s original peoples and we invite others to also think about the past and present-day realities of these communities, and to holistically question colonial practices that disrupt connections to families, homes, and the Earth. Furthermore, at a University which has consistently resisted acknowledging the legacy of the land that it is built upon, it is vital for different communities in this space to centre ideas of responsibility, reciprocity, and resilience in our work and be accountable to the treaty relationships we are bound to.

NOTE: This is an event that is part of an International Annually organized Charity Week. We have several events throughout the week you can look out for, InshaAllah (God-willing).
