As Seen On
In 2013, a local Boston nonprofit was lacking resources to fulfill it’s mission of youth education. With the tragedy of the Boston Marathon still fresh on the minds of seven close friends, they thought about how to help this nonprofit while also expressing solidarity with their fellow citizens. While breaking their fast during a night in Ramadan, 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.
