This year, Islamic Relief Canada is a proud charity partner of the Mississauga Marathon.

There will be two racing events we will take part in: 5km & 10km. Join us on May 6th, 2017 to participate in the racing event of your choice and raise donations for the East Africa crisis. 
Across South Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Ethiopia and Kenya, more than 20 million people suffer the brunt of famine. Due to months-long and widespread drought across the region, a surge in volatile conflict erupted across the region, causing unprecedented food insecurity and mass displacement. With nothing to eat, and nowhere to go, families are dying of starvation. Their needs are urgent and simple – food, water, sanitation – and the fatal difference is your donation.
  • Islamic Relief is on the ground right now responding to the devastating impact of conflict and climate in each country. Our emergency response provides immediate clean water and food packs. We also help with prevention programs to increase household resilience to drought.
On May 6th, join us as we run to help change lives in East Africa.
