UNRWA Gaza Marathon 2012

30 July 2012

On 1 March 2012, about 2,000 runners from Gaza and around the world took part in the second Gaza Marathon, running the entire 42-kilometre length of the Strip to raise funds for Palestine refugee children.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) holds the marathon as a fundraiser for the annual Summer Games, a rare opportunity for kids in the blockaded territory to have a normal summer.
