The UNRWA 2017 DC Gaza 5K – Mental Health for the Children of Palestine

On Sept 16, 2017, there will be a 5K Fundraiser in DC, hosted by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).

I will be participating in this for the 3rd consecutive year!

I absolutely love this 5K Run and Fundraiser! Always such a beautiful and empowering experience.

It doesn’t matter whether one recognizes human rights for Palestinians or Palestinian statehood. Mental health for children cuts across all the human-imposed boundaries. But especially for innocent children suffering in a war zone, it is sadly much needed and an under-represented area of recovery.

This run is personally very important to me as well, as it represents two critical issues close to my heart: mental health care and basic human rights for the children of Palestine.

Please consider joining in the run or donating just a small amount, either through my fundraising page below or through the main site:
