Zaman International Celebrates Their 7th Annual Run/Walk Picnic

By Laura Fawaz, contributing writer

DEARBORN–Zaman International held their seventh annual Zaman Hope for Humanity Run Walk Picnic last Saturday at Ford Field Park in Dearborn, MI.

With an estimated 400 people in attendance, this event catered to runners and walkers alike. Beginning at Ford Field Park, this trail took event-goers up to Michigan Ave, down the road half a mile, then to the trail leading to the Henry Ford Estate. Zaman’s goal was making this an event of fun and fitness for the whole family, while raising awareness and funds for all of the Michigan based programs they give out year-round.  These programs all have one common goal, addressing the basic needs and empowerment of poverty stricken women and children, and seniors and the disabled in Michigan.

The day consisted of 10K and 5K runs, a kids run, and a 5K walk all timed with the winning results provided online.  There was also a picnic with a barbecue lunch, a decorating pumping patch, pony rides, a petting zoo, a basketball competition, face painting, among others.

Zaman International hosts a variety of community events throughout the year, all aimed at helping those in need.  More info can be found on their Facebook page.
