The Big Ride for Palestine is an initiative by supporters of the Palestinian people that combines a love of cycling with practical solidarity and awareness raising.
We’re organising The Big Ride for Palestine 2020 differently this year to make the ride safer for people taking part during the Covid19 pandemic. We are asking people to nominate a ride or other activity (walking, jogging etc.) of their choice to complete during the second and third weeks of September. You can ride as an individual or in small teams. Riders register and seek sponsorship from supporter, friends and relatives.
In 2020 funds will be sent via Union Aid Abroad (APHEDA) to its partner, the Palestinian Women’s Humanitarian Organisation (PWHO), that works within the Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon.
PWHO aims to improve the well-being of women, children, PWDs and those with severe health problems and empower them to achieve independence through empowerment, education, rehabilitation, early intervention and home-care services, and through lobbying and advocating for Palestinian rights and causes.
When: From Sat 5th till 20th Sept 2020
Where: Wherever you like!

We plan to have a picnic / BBQ after the rides on 20th Sept. More details TBA.
