Experience the thrill of a lifetime!

Join Muslim Hands to take on the adrenaline-fueled challenge of walking hands-free around the ledge of Canada’s iconic CN tower. It is the world’s highest full-circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft- (1.5 m-) wide ledge 116 stories above the ground.

You’ll be fundraising to provide a Dig-A-Well to a community in Mali, Niger, Sudan or Pakistan. The well will feature a plaque with your or your loved one’s name on it and you will receive personalized feedback on completion of the project. The donated well will count as Sadaqah Jariyah so you will earn a continuous flow of rewards each time the well is used inshallah.

There are only 18 spaces available, register now to reserve your spot!

The Cause

800 million people around the world do not have access to clean water and face obstacles to their health and prosperity daily. An estimated 842,000 people die each year from diarrhoea due to unsafe drinking water and every minute a new-born dies from infection caused by lack of safe water. Women and children spend 200 million hours a year collecting water, this is a colossal waste of time, keeping them locked in a cycle of poverty
unable to earn or study for a brighter future. Access to clean water saves lives and whole lot of time!

With your support, we will build a Dig a Well in the country of your choice, that can serve up to 200 people, providing access to clean water for drinking, washing and cooking, as well as keeping livestock hydrated. On average, these wells serve up to 35 families.
