The proceeds from this event will benefit UNRWAs 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. Since November, reported cases of PTSD have risen by more than 100%. 42% of those cases are children under the age of nine.
These children need our help, and thats 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 UNRWAs 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.
Lace up your running or walking shoes, bring your friends, your family, and even your pets and well see you May 17th!
