I love badass Muslimahs. Especially when they’re not setting out to be badass — but are badass by virtue of their good works and efforts.
Yeah okay, it also helps when fierce women hit bags, throw punches, spin kicks, run marathons and use their physical prowess to raise money for a local youth shelter.
A month ago a group of Muslim women started training to run a half-marathon taking place this Saturday in Ottawa. Their goal is to promote healthy and active lifestyles through the spirit of sport and raise money to help establish a youth centre to nurture the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of youth today.
