Imam Mohammed Mahmoud from Finsbury Park, hailed for his brave response to the Finsbury Park terror attack, will run London’s new half marathon to help hungry children in the City.
London’s hero Imam, will be running London’s first Half Marathon to raise important funds for the Felix Project a charity founded by Evening Standard chairman Justin Byam Shaw in memory of his son Felix.
It redistributes fresh, quality food from supermarkets and retailers that would otherwise be wasted to vulnerable people.
Preparing for the run Imam Mohammed said: “Running the Big Half is a small gesture, we must support causes that restore people’s dignity and make them feel needed and wanted and cared about and loved. In 2018 London there is an unacceptable level of hunger, that is why it’s so important to support and work with organisations that work specifically on these causes such as The Felix Project,”
