The race is being organized by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Windsor in partnership with the City of Windsor and Windsor Regional Hospital.
Proceeds from the event will go towards supporting the future Windsor Regional Hospital Urgent Care Centre to be built at the former Grace Hospital Site located at University and Crawford Avenue.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Windsor plans to raise $500,000 over 10 years to support the proposed Urgent Care Centre, a 4-storey, 80,226 square foot satellite facility of the proposed new Windsor Essex single site acute care hospital.
The 1st Run for Windsor event, held in May 2017, successfully raised tens of thousands of dollars through the support of approximately 400 participants.
In the spirit of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat motto, “Love For All, Hatred For None”, the organization launched Run For Canada charity events across the country 13 years ago. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised around the country to support local causes. The Windsor chapter of Ahmadiyya Jamaat Canada brings this national Run For Canada campaign to Windsor in the form of the Run For Windsor.
