Let’s get the 2016 challenges year off to a flying start by taking part in the Muslim Hands Gaza Winter Walk. This awesome event, now in its eighth year, takes place in 8 cities around the country from north to south, making it an event not to be missed. You’ll join thousands of other walkers from communities all across the country, united in a mission to raise funds for the children of Gaza. You’ll take on a five mile trek traversing a variety of terrain, so be sure to wrap up warmly.
Since 2007 when the Gaza Winter Walk first began, Muslim Hands have provided emergency relief such as food, shelter and medicines, set up income generation projects to rehabilitate the agricultural economy and built large-scale water purification systems to combat Gaza’s severe water shortages. They have also supported the construction of the medical lab and integrated pharmacy in Al-Durrah Hospital, as well as the expansion of the emergency and respiratory departments.
The Gaza Winter Walk could be the perfect start to a year filled with adventurous challenges. Can you think of a better way to warm up and ease into the year to come? Check out the dates and locations below to find a venue near you. Or go mad and do the full nation tour!
