Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Newmarket, Canada, held its second “Annual Run for Newmarket” on 1 October 2023. The aim is to support the local community and bring people together for a noble cause. The event was held at the Fairy Lake Park Newmarket.

Three different paths of varying lengths offered a choice for more than 300 participants who showed up, 80% of whom were non-Ahmadis. These paths were of the following length. All proceeds went to support CHATS – Community Home and Assistance to Seniors – as well as the York Region Food Network.

A number of dignitaries were on hand for the event, including members of the Federal and Provincial Parliaments, the mayor of Newmarket, and four councillors.

A number of local businesses sponsored the event and set up stalls.

Prizes were awarded to the top three runners in the 5km and 10km races. Fun-filled activities kept the kids engaged all day long. Free keychains and thoughtful gifts were generously provided by event sponsors. A complimentary photo printing service captured unforgettable memories.

This event was covered by Newmarket Today as well as reported on social media.
