3rd annual Gaza Solidarity 5K Walk/Run (DC)

IMPORTANT NOTICE: ONLINE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.

 

WHY THE GAZA 5K?


The proceeds from this event will benefit UNRWA’s psycho-social support program for children in Gaza suffering from psychological trauma and PTSD due to the devastating November 2012 violence and the prolonged blockade. 

These children need our help, and that’s why your participation is so critical. Whether you participate as a sponsor, runner, walker, or cheerleader, we want to see you there!

By participating, you will directly support UNRWA’s psycho-social support program to provide these children with critically needed counseling services, offering them a safe space to express their emotions and fears, and the opportunity to work with trained counselors to learn valuable coping skills.
