What is Fast-A-Thon?



In the tradition of fasting, Islam on Campus wants you to fast for an entire day. That’s right. No food and no water- from dawn to dusk- all to help the needy. For every person that pledges to fast, IOC will raise money to donate to different charitiesBut don’t worry! When the sun sets, you are invited to break your fast with a feast- for FREE! You are welcome to dine with us even if you do not pledge to fast.


More info coming soon!
