If you’re one of the many people who feel helpless amidst the ongoing Gaza genocide and are seeking a way to help, Egypt’s Tri-Factory has co-organized an event that’ll have you getting off the couch, grabbing your favorite sneakers, and hitting up the tarmac. Taking place on Friday, February 16th at Wadi Degla Protectorate is the ‘Run For Gaza’ event.
At the event, you have the option to go for the timed and more intense 5K run or take it lightly and easily and attempt the 1K run made especially for young runners and their families.
With this type of race, it’s all about moving your body and the simple joy of a good run. That’s why runners taking part in either the 1K or 5K run get a T-shirt and finisher medal at the end.
Knowing that it’s an event dedicated to Palestine, all proceeds from the ‘Run For Gaza’ will directly benefit its citizens. So be sure to take part as your participation will help contribute to efforts in aiding Gaza and its people. To sign up and book a spot, head to Tazkarti and buy a ticket.
