Muslim man to run 260km for charity while fasting every day

He has started the huge feat to support British Muslim charity Penny Appeal, which has formed an emergency response programme to help poorer countries deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

Hawzah News Agency - (London - UK) - Haroon Mota is pushing himself to the limit in a bid to support some of the world’s most vulnerable people. Despite fasting from sunrise to sunset for Ramadan, Haroon has pledged to run 260km to raise money for charity. He has started the huge feat to support British Muslim charity Penny Appeal, which has formed an emergency response programme to help poorer countries deal with the coronavirus pandemic. His target is £25,000, of which he has already raised over half. All of the funds raised will go directly towards supporting those at risk of contracting the virus. This includes countries facing war, crisis, and mass displacement, where people living in refugee camps are unable to protect themselves and depend upon humanitarian aid for survival. The money Harron raises will also go towards supporting people in the UK where food and hygiene packs are being distributed to vulnerable groups that are isolating.

Haroon originally planned to run four world major marathons in five weeks but had to postpone his plans when the Berlin Marathon was cancelled and the others put under review. Determined to see his fundraising through and further inspired by the 2.6 Challenge – where you choose a challenge related to the numbers 2.6 or 26 – Haroon vowed to go on.
