From the event website:
Run for Palestine (RFP) is a family-oriented, fun-filled day across Canada that welcomes all members of the community. Participants can walk 1 km or run 5 km to raise funds for much-needed humanitarian projects helping the Palestinian people.
The event will take place on Saturday SEP 2, 2023 along the beautiful trail of Greenway Park, located in London. After the run, there will be food available, a bazaar, and entertainment. The trail accommodates wheelchairs and strollers. We encourage the participation of all community members of different activity lifestyles and mobility backgrounds.
OUR THREE INSPIRING PROJECTS
Supporting Newborns in Palestine:
We have partnered with Islamic Relief Canada to make a significant difference in the lives of newborns in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. By enhancing the neonatal unit at Al-Makassed Hospital in Jerusalem, we aim to provide critical care to the most vulnerable among us. Your support will help us create a brighter future for these little ones.
Empowering Education Through CPPF:
Our collaboration with the Canadian Palestinian Professional Foundation (CPPF) focuses on nurturing academic excellence and leadership in Palestine. Through scholarship funding and support, we are shaping the future generation by enabling them to pursue education and professional growth. Join us in fostering brighter prospects for these talented students.
Enhancing Neonatal Care in London:
At London Health Sciences Centre, we are dedicated to enhancing neonatal intensive care. Our goal is to acquire a new NICU shuttle, a state-of-the-art tool that allows us to provide the best care for these fragile infants. With your help, we can ensure that these little ones receive the medical attention they need, without any compromise.
YOUR IMPACT MATTERS
Your contributions have already shown incredible results. Last year, your generosity helped us raise over $166,802 for essential medical equipment and furnishings for the maternity department at Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza. This achievement was made possible by the dedication of over 4000 attendees across Canada who united to support Palestine's most vulnerable populations.
TOGETHER WE CAN ACHIEVE MORE
With your continued support, we aim to strengthen healthcare systems, provide vital equipment, essential drugs, and offer capacity-building support to medical professionals. Your donations enable us to conduct in-person and online medical training, ensuring that care providers have the knowledge they need to save lives.
