A Run for Windsor event Saturday at Windsor’s Riverfront Plaza, backed by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, was essentially the first of many fundraising events that are anticipated to kick into high gear with the mega-hospital plan officially moving forward.

The Muslim group has pledged it will raise $500,000 over 10 years, primarily through Run for Windsor events, with its focus on supporting the new Urgent Care Centre to be constructed under the mega-hospital plan on the former Grace hospital site off Crawford Avenue near University Avenue West.

About 600 participants took part in there group’s first fundraising run which it expects to stage annually on Mother’s Day weekends over each of the next several years, said organizer Pasha Qureshi.

He moved to Windsor in 2014 after living in several cities both in Canada and elsewhere.

“When I first came here, a friend told me they had to go elsewhere in Ontario for heart surgery,” Qureshi said. “I chose Windsor to live and it’s being promoted as a retirement community. I visited the hospital myself and realized it’s substandard and we do need a new facility.”

His group’s motto is “love for all” and helping the community any way possible, he said.

“Whatever the community needs, we will do that,” Qureshi said. “Under our motto and faith we want to help all people in Windsor and Essex County.”
