Support Playgrounds For Palestine (with your feet or with your wallet)

Playgrounds for Palestine (PfP) is always looking for exciting new ways to raise much needed funds to build playgrounds for children in Palestine. This year is no exception, as PfP founder Susie Abulhawa will put on her racing shoes and run this year’s Philadelphia Half Marathon on September 21st. http://www.ingphiladelphiadistancerun.com/home.html

And in case Abulhawa hasn’t put her body through a grueling enough experience in September, on November 23rd she and veteran Palestinian-American journalist (former Al Jazeera producer, and current Editor-in-Chief of the Palestine Chronicle) Ramzy Baroud will then run the Philadelphia Marathon. Susie’s children Natalie and Amir also plan to do their part and run in the children’s 1 mile event. http://www.philadelphiamarathon.com/

PfP plans to host a party the evening before the marathon, where people can gather to support the runners – morally and financially. We would love you to join us! (Details to be announced – check our website)

Want to get involved? We are encouraging friends of PfP from around the country to participate in similar events and make this a national – even international! – fund raiser. We’ll provide T shirts, help you organize a party and will pay your entry fee if you finish. All funds raised will go towards Playgrounds For Palestine

“After the ‘Cast lead’ attack on Gaza, PfP shared a video of the kids finally able to go outside where there still stood a (PfP) playground.  It still brings tears to think about the joy of those kids swarming the playground…  It really brought home the great work PfP does. “
