The Run for Palestine is a fun, family-friendly event bringing Canadians together to alleviate the suffering of Palestinian children living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Runners, walkers, and people of all ages are welcome.
Proceeds from the Run For Palestine 5K & 10K will fund UNRWA's Community Mental Health Program (CMHP) to help empower vulnerable refugees in Gaza, especially children, to better cope with the extreme psychological pressures they face on a daily basis. Through the program, UNRWA provides school counselling, group sessions, and even in-home therapy for those who are unable to travel.
