InshAllah, this email reaches you in the best of health and the highest level of Iman. The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) has started its second project for the year. The goal of this project is to raise money for people financially affected by the COVID-19 pandemic by having a Walkathon.
The Prophet (S) said:
“ Whoever removes a worldly grief from a believer, Allah will remove from him one of the griefs of the Day of Resurrection. And whoever alleviates the need of a needy person, Allah will alleviate his needs in this world and the Hereafter. Whoever shields [or hides the misdeeds of] a Muslim, Allah will shield him in this world and the Hereafter. And Allah will aid His slave so long as he aids his brother.”
To support this cause, an individual can be:
A. Anybody can participate, child or adult as individuals or a whole family together.
i. Note: Attending BHA is not a requirement.
B. Each participant will need to recruit sponsors. Sponsors can be family, friends, loved ones, or others.
C. The sponsor would donate to an agreed upon dollar amount for each mile.
For example: A dollar for every mile.
Donor: A donor can sponsor a class, grade, club, or the whole event, or match the collected amount partially or fully.
