Location: Diana Event Oval, Barnard College
Join MSA and NFL football player Hamza Abdullah at MSA’s annual Fast-a-Thon! One of the biggest events of the year, Fast-a-Thon is a day when members of the community pledge to fast a day to experience a cross- cultural and spiritual practice, all while helping raise money for charity.
In the evening, we will come together to break our fast over a banquet style meal and with the help of NFL football player, one of the Abdullah brothers, Hamza Abdullah, who will reflect on his personal experiences of fasting and spiritually while training in the National Football League.
This year we are working to raise awareness and funds for victims of the humanitarian crisis in Myanmar. Since June of 2012, the Rohingya people of Myanmar have been undergoing persecution and the crisis has been deemed a genocide. The UN considers the Rohingya people one of the most persecuted minority groups so we want you to help us make a difference!
Doors open at 6:45 PM.
