UNRWA USA is partnering with Right to Movement Palestine to bring a group of runners and refugees from Palestine to relay run 250 miles down the East Coast, from New York to DC, in just five days, to deliver a message that UNRWA needs America’s investment.
The runners aim to raise $100,000 before they arrive in Washington DC on September 25.
