Registration for Fast and Studious 2016 is now open. Please register HERE.

The Fast and the Studious is a 24 hour fast where students collect monetary pledges for the Campus Food Bank. Participants vow to fast for 24 hours, only being allowed water or tea throughout the duration of the fast in order to raise funds and raise awareness about student hunger at the University of Alberta. Students get to experience first hand what it would be like to attend classes and go about their daily activities while experiencing the reality of hunger that many students face. Part of the event includes a kick off meal before the fast and a wrap up dinner with prizes for the highest fundraisers, door prizes, presentations, and participant testimonials. This will be the 7th year of this event and our fundraising goal is $4000.00, as we were able to exceed our goal last year by raising almost $3700.00!
