With no substantive political progress, the humanitarian situation for Palestinians trying to survive amidst a raging war and suffocating Israeli occupation remains extremely dire, particularly in Gaza.

Please join us for a 5.5K walk through downtown Ann Arbor to raise awareness of Palestinian plight and to raise funds to provide Palestinian humanitarian relief.

The Walkathon’s net proceeds will be donated to UNRWA USA, which supports UNRWA. (We wholeheartedly agree with UNRWA USA’s analysis and rationale for resuming its funding of UNRWA on April 8th.)

We are extremely grateful for the community’s support of our recent Iftar Dinner for Gaza, and together, we hope to build off that momentum for another successful fundraising event to further alleviate Palestinian suffering.

**PLEASE NOTE**: Palestine Aid Society of America (PAS) is committed to managing your donations responsibly. To maximize the impact of each donation, we use a 100% free fundraising platform called Zeffy that relies exclusively on donor contributions to cover its operating costs. Watch for this when donating or registering. If you do not wish to contribute Zeffy’s pre-set amount, choose Other from the drop-down menu and specify the amount you wish to pay, if any, in the Contribution field. If you prefer not to contribute at all, you can leave the Contribution field blank or enter 0.
