What is Run For Calgary

The Run for Calgary is an event that was created and organized by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community for the sole purpose of providing a grassroots program to raise funds and awareness for non-profit and other social organizations in Calgary. The Run brings out serious and casual runners and walkers from all across Calgary. Participants come with their families and enjoy the festivities of the day.
