Arif Kazi will be running 13.1 mile Hotlanta Half-Marathon while fasting for Ramadan to bring awareness and raise funds to feed the Hungry in America.


Just $13.10 to feed our Hungry Neighbors!

1 out of 6 Americans are uncertain as to whether or not they will receive a next meal, and therefore face food insecurity. Just like air and water, food is a basic human necessity in order to survive, and most of us have been blessed enough to have even more. Can't we just donate as little as $13.10 to help our hungry neighbors?



13.1 mile Ramadan Run to Feed the Hungry

In the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn to sunset in hopes of increasing their spirituality. They also fast in an attempt to grasp the reality of hunger, by omitting the intake of both food and liquid. This Ramadan, I strive to shine a light upon the reality of hunger in America by running the Hotlanta Half-Marathon (13.1 mi), in the hot humid weather of Atlanta on June 11th, while fasting. This means no water or food for 16 hours, during and after the 13.1-mile run. I'm doing this to raise awareness for the fact that hunger does exist, and not too far from home. Therefore, I request that you please support my cause by donating $1 per mile, for 13.1 miles. I have partnered with a non-profit organization, Share Atlanta, and 100% of the funds will be going towards distributing food to the hungry. All funds are tax deductible.
