What is Fast-A-Thon?


Only IOC’s biggest event of the year! We host over 700 people each year in an effort to raise money and create awareness for social issues around the globe. How do we do this? We invite people from all backgrounds to fast for a day and come together at sunset to break fast. In Islam, fasting is an act that allows us to appreciate our blessings, and motivates us to give in charity to those who are less fortunate. For every person that pledges to fast, IOC pledges to make a donation on their behalf!


Event Details: Thursday, October 18 from 6 PM – 9 PM at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center

Theme: Rising Together


We are excited to announce ICNA Relief as our local charity for this year’s Fast-A-Thon, and the Edhi Foundation as our international charity!
