Stanmore Jafferys Running are pleased to launch registration for the Ali Asghar Water Appeal (AAWA) 2021.
Join us for SJ Ladies Running’s first independent event on Saturday 11th September 2021 to run/jog/walk 10km and raise funds for WF-AID’s life changing global water projects. Starting at our Hujjat Islamic Centre after Zohr Salaa, we will be running/walking a loop of 10km which will end back at Hujjat.
Note: this event is for ladies age 16+.
The purpose of this initiative is to work towards making this world a better place and making a difference together therefore all funds collected as part of this campaign will be dedicated to specifically selected projects that have a high impact upon the beneficiaries where there is a severe shortage or absence of key facilities such as clean drinking water and other life-essential initiatives. The absence of such facilities has led to an exponential surge in diseases and ill health amongst the population.
Last year we held the UK’s First Cycling Sportive for Muslim women and as a community (along with Gents Cycling) successfully raised over £100,000 for WF-AID’s flagship AAWA project to bring life-changing sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene initiatives to those who are less fortunate than we are and whose only hope is our generosity. Once again, we rose to the challenge and affected humanity in so many ways in #makingadifferencetogether by #givingthroughsport. We are humbly asking you again to #HelpUsHelpHumanity. We thank you in advance for your support.

If there are gents in your family participating in the SJ Cycling AAWA Sportive, feel free to set up family sub-pages to raise funds collectively.
Registration deadline 1st September 2021
Inevitably, to run an event like this, we require volunteers and marshals to assist us on the day both at Hujjat and on the route itself. If you are not intending on participating in the 10k but are available on the afternoon of 11th September, please do join us in helping to deliver this initiative.
