What is FAST-A-THON?
Fast-A-Thon is Islam on Campus’ biggest event of the year! We host over 500 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 their 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.
Our goal for this year is to raise $10,000, which would surpass any amount raised since the beginning of FAST-A-THON.
