Members of Quebec City's Nepalese community rallied to raise funds for earthquake survivors in their home country.

Several hundred people gathered on Saturday in L'Anse-à-Cartier park in Limoilou for a solidarity rally, fundraiser and fun run in support of people affected by last week's earthquake in Nepal. 

The earthquake, measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale, struck on April 25, just before noon in Nepal. As many as 7,000 people were killed, many by falling rubble.
