Young Ahmadiyya Muslims take part in 10k run to raise thousands for charity

The Asian Image: Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association were in Manchester’s Heaton Park to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity.

They took part in a 10k run to raise more than £400,000 for UK charities. The event is part of the ‘Mercy for Mankind’ series of charitable initiatives with volunteers raising money for those in need irrespective of religion, race, gender or creed.

Mirza Waqas Ahmad, National AMYA President said, “We held our flagship charity fundraising event on Remembrance Sunday marked our respect for those who fought for our freedom by starting the run with the 2 minutes silence at 11 am.
“Our youth are regularly in serving their local communities through partaking in activities such as donating blood, planting trees, visiting the sick and elderly, and making a positive contribution to the community and country as a whole.

“We do this as Islam teaches us service to humanity is a part of faith.”

The youth have also been collecting for the Poppy Appeal on high streets, rail and tube stations, stadiums and airports.
