THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SUPPORTED RUNNING in Palestine 4 refugees!
Rahaf has raised over $10,000 for refugees in Palestine with team Penny Appeal in March 2020. She continually supports and remembers those in need, and is so thankful for the community of other runners that helps support her global mission. Due to travel constraints around the current health situation, Rahaf’s trip to Palestine was cancelled, but Penny Appeal is still able to distribute the donations as planned. Thank you to all who have supported this mission during this time!
I’m stoked to announce that I’ll be running in Palestine with team PennyAppeal in March inshallah! This news couldn’t have come at a better time for me for so many emotional and personal reasons. With one year since the passing of my Baba, I found myself living each day somberly; missing him greatly and losing some motivation in my running. Raising money for Refugee rooftop gardens gives me a sense of purpose so close to his date of passing.
I don’t think this invitation to run with team PennyAppealUSA in Palestine (omg I can’t believe I’ll be running the holy streets of Jerusalem) was a coincidence. Raising money in his honor, and for the Palestinian refugees goes hand in hand,. This opportunity to RUN in the HOLY city is something I could only dream of. And now since the opportunity presents itself, I want to make sure I make it all worth it.
