Who are we

Founded in 2009 and registered as a Canadian not-for-profit organization in 2011, Run for Palestine (RFP) is an athletic organization based in Toronto, Ontario. Our mission is to organize yearly walks and runs in Canada to show solidarity with the Palestinian people. We work tirelessly with various community organizations and volunteers to raise funds for Palestinians in need. Our association’s objective is to engage people from all walks of life through sport and healthy living, while empowering Palestinians through humanitarian and social projects.


What projects do we help?

In 2017, RFP Toronto will fundraise for ‘The Recovering Well Being of Gaza’s Children’ initiative. This project is managed by Islamic Relief Canada, a registered Canadian Charity. This initiative aims to provide integrated psycho-social support for Gazan children suffering from mental health disorders.tions.


Where are we now?

The number of attendees has grown consistently over the years! We started with 30 runners in 2008, and reached 800 in 2017! This year, we hope to get 1000 participants!
