Run For Palestine
Here’s something you can get involved in to make a difference in the world – while making me suffer! Perfect eh.
I’m doing a 5k run for Palestine on Saturday. I’ve been training for weeks, but then put my back out two weeks ago. So I’ve been nursing a sore back since then.
But I won’t be deterred and I will be running nonetheless. It’s too good a cause.
I’m currently short of my target so need your help to meet it.

The beneficiaries are Friends of Bi’lin.
Friends of Bi’lin is a Liverpool based group that is twinned with the village of Bi’lin in the West Bank in Palestine.
Twinning is an act of friendship and solidarity with a people suffering from occupation, oppression and denial of basic human rights and freedoms, ensuring they do not feel isolated in their daily struggle. It creates opportunities for exchange visits and we get to know real people in a real place.
LFOB is non-party political, and its members come from Christian, Jewish and Moslem backgrounds, and from no faith.
So please do sponsor me if you can – or share the link to show your support: http://www.gofundme.com/alunrun
And wish good luck to me and my back!
