More than 1,100 people came to Dearborn’s Ford Field Park on Sept. 21 for Zaman’s Tenth Annual Hope for Humanity Run Walk Picnic. This record number of attendees enjoyed a day of food, fun and fitness while raising over $23,000 for Detroit-area women and children experiencing extreme poverty.
The event, organized largely by the Zaman Detroit Run Team and supported generously by individual and corporate donors, featured a barbecue lunch, 5K and 10K runs, a kids’ run, and a host of activities for children and adults that included pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting, pumpkin decorating, basketball and tug-of-war challenges, and a photo booth.
The 2019 Run Walk Picnic was supported by Platinum Sponsors Red Effect Infrared Fitness and RE/MAX Team 2000; Gold Sponsors Assured Capital Funding, McKesson and Superior Buick GMC; Silver Sponsors Butter Bear Shop, Chief Financial Credit Union, Omnex Accounting & Tax Services, Pat Milliken Ford, RUNdetroit, Saad Wholesale Meats and The University of Michigan-Dearborn; and Picnic Sponsors BSP Law, Mike Dorian Ford, Firefly Insurance Agency and Greenland Markets.
Zaman also thanks the following organizations, businesses and individuals whose assistance, donations and supplies made the day possible: The Ann Arbor Track Club, Dearborn Parks & Recreation Department, The Dearborn Police Department, Dearborn Fire & Rescue, Mohamed & Nadia Ayoub, the University of Michigan School of Pharmacy, Dairy Queen of Dearborn, Plante Moran, and Little Kahuna Shave Ice.
