Young Muslims from Newcastle and Teesside travelled to the Lake District to run and walk for charity to show True Islam.
The largest Muslim youth organisation in Britain, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) is held its Mercy for Mankind charity challenge on Saturday 19th August in Fitz Park, Keswick.
Members of the organisation, some as young as 10, from Newcastle and Teesside, joined other youth from across the country to practice the Islamic teachings of serving humanity by raising funds for British charities in the Half Marathon. They hope to dispel myths surrounding Islam by promoting its true peaceful values.
Over 700 members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) raised more than £400,000 for UK charities including, The Royal British Legion, Save the Children, NSPCC, Barnardos, CLIC Sargent, UNICEF, British Red Cross, Cumbria Community Foundation and others.
This year welcomes the 33rd Charity Challenge, which first began in 1985. Since its inception AMYA has raised in excess of £2m for UK charities. The event is generally hosted in a different location each year, with previous locations including the Tower of London, Hyde Park, Battersea Park, Hampshire and the Yorkshire Dales.
