VOLUNTEERING TO MARSHAL AT THE SMALL PARK BIG RUN

Meersbrook Park, Sheffield 15-16 June 2019, noon to noon

A unique, fun, 24-hour running community challenge in Meersbrook Park, Sheffield. Raising awareness and funds for women’s education and children’s mental health in Palestine.

We will have at least two people running, walking, jogging or wheeling round a circuit of Meersbrook Park at all times over 24 hours and we will need lots of marshals to help us ensure that the event goes smoothly.

 

On top being a fun community event that will challenge all from babes to pensioners, joggers to ultrarunners, small park BIG RUN will draw attention to the dreadful situation in Palestine and raise funds for two fantastic Palestinian projects: 1. Khuza'a Children's Healing project and 2. University education for Palestinian women. Details of how to fundraise for these projects can be found here.

Organiser

small park BIG RUN

small park BIG RUN is organised by individuals from Sheffield Palestine Cultural Exchange (SPaCE), Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), Sheffield Palestine Women's Scholarship Fund and the local Meersbrook and Heeley community. Local groups participating in the organisation include Meersbrook Park Users Trust and Heeley Development Trust.

SPaCE is committed to promoting Palestinian culture in Sheffield by holding cultural events and, where possible, making live links with Palestinians. In ttandem with the small park BIG RUN we plan to organise a tandem run in Palestine.

The Sheffield Palestine Women's Scholarship Fund is a UK based charity set up in 2007 following a 2006 International Women’s Day Conference where a call was made to support women into education in Gaza. The Fund raises money for scholarships to pay the university fees of poor often refugee Palestinian women into higher education in the Gaza Strip. In 2017 41 women are being supported.

Sheffield PSC has been active in Sheffield since 1990s. It is a group committed to highlighting injustices suffered by Palestinian people. SPSC supports children's' projects in Gaza and funds play and educational facilties and, amongst other intiatives, a mobile library. More recently we have funded a trauma centre to help recovery from the psychological impact of war.
