Fasting 5K Run for Barakat

As they approached the landmark Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC) mosque in Boston, a rally of supporters awaited to cheer on the fasting runners who had just completed a 5k run to raise money for schoolchildren in Attock, Pakistan. What started out as a modest effort by a group of friends to raise $2,500 for one school computer lab blossomed into a community wide effort resulting in over $13,000 in donations in a matter of a week. These donations will not only replace a few computers, but revamp the computer labs of all three schools run by Cambridge, MA based nonprofit Barakat Inc. in Attock, complete with desktops and printers.
