Palestine MMA Sydney Fun-Run Announced

Palestine Sports Initiative – Sydney, Australia

The Palestine MMA Sydney street team have announced a 5km Fun-Run/Walk in Support of Palestine MMA’s Olympic Sports Programs. The event is titled the “Palestine Sports Initiative” and will be held at the historic Parramatta Park in Sydney’s west on 11 June 2012 (9:00am-12:00pm)

Participants will have a choice to either donate $50 to participate (which includes a free T-shirt and BBQ) or accept the Sponsorship challenge – which challenges each participant to have friends and family sponsor their efforts for each kilometer completed on the day. Sponsorships in include:

  • Sponsorship Lite – $5 per Km
  • Sponsorship Standard – $7 per km
  • Sponsorship Hardcore – $10 per km

Everyone accepting the sponsorship challenge will be given a target of raising $500 (don’t worry, anyone raising over $50 still gets the T-shirt and BBQ).

With the run up to the 2012 Olympics well under way, the aim is to try and raise enough funds to launch ‘Palestine MMA’ and kick-start the hopes of Palestinian youths in aiming for qualification for Rio 2016.

With the launch of the programs tentatively scheduled for September 2012, time is quickly running out – so the fundraising efforts in Sydney could make all the difference. The day will be a family friendly day and end with a BBQ which will be hosted by Palestine MMA volunteers.
