Medical Aid For Palestinians

Support Palestinian refugees and those living under occupation by running the marathon or half marathon at Edinburgh Marathon Festival in 2020!

Whether it’s your first marathon or you’re aiming for a PB, this is an ideal course as it’s flat and fast. Don’t miss the opportunity to take part in the UK’s second largest marathon event.

Why should you run?

This iconic challenge is a great way of showing your support for Palestinians living under the daily grind of occupation or those living as refugees. The funds you raise will go towards our medical projects providing both urgent and primary healthcare to the most vulnerable Palestinians living in Gaza, the West Bank and Lebanon.

In recent weeks airstrikes in Gaza have killed over 34 people including at least 8 children, and over 100 are injured. Medical Aid For Palestinians has been one of the first responders to treat casualties. The security situation there remains tense and we are in urgent need of your support to get vital medical supplies into Gaza’s hospitals.

Please get in touch to register your place and receive your complimentary MAP shirt.
