Young Men and Kids Walk for a Noble Cause
On Sunday, the 8th of January 2006, Majlise Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Australia and Humanity First jointly organised a 'Walkathon' in order to raise funds for the Royal Institute of Deaf and Blind Children.
The day began with the Khuddam (young men) and Atfal (kids under 16) gathering at the Bait-Ul-Huda mosque in Western Sydney at 10am. The 'walk' took place in the Blacktown region and commenced with a silent prayer led by President Khuddam, Amzad Habib Khan.
This 'walk' was approximately 10kms long and around 30 Khuddam participated in it. It was a typical summer's day in Sydney, so fruits and drinks were provided at various points during the 'walk' to keep the Khuddam refreshed. At the same time as the Khuddam were walking, the Atfal were also keen to get into the spirit of things, so around 20 Atfal walked for 2kms around the vicinity of Bait-Ul-Huda Mosque.
