Majlis Ansarullah Windsor, Ontario, Canada, organised its 4th ‘Annual Run for Windsor’ on 18 May 2024, with over 500 participants, including around 300 non-Ahmadis.

The day commenced with onsite registration starting at 9 am, followed by the opening ceremony. The event was attended by Regional Amir, Asif Shaikh Sahib; Mayor of the City of Windsor, Mr Drew Dilkins; Member of Provincial Parliament, Mr Andrew Dowie; Member of Parliament, Mr Irek Kusmierczyk, and city councillors who remained actively engaged throughout the day’s proceedings.

In a special pre-run ceremony, Mayor Drew Dilkens thanked the Jamaat for putting this event together each year and for their ongoing work to help build a more welcoming, diverse and inclusive Windsor for all.

MPP Andrew Dowie also thanked Majlis Ansarullah Windsor for organising the event.

The run commenced at 10 am and was attended by over 175 runners as timed runs for 5K,  while the remaining participants participated as walking for 1.5K. Prizes were distributed by Mr Irek Kusmierczyk, MP who also addressed the attendees.

Fun activities, including a bouncy castle for children, were organised alongside 12 stalls showcasing various businesses.

This year, we welcomed a group of runners from the Chinese community that represented the Essex County Chinese Canadian Association (ECCCA) and the Chinese Association of Greater Windsor (CAGW).

The event garnered numerous positive reviews from the local community, with everyone appreciating our message of Love for All, Hatred for None.
