Many thanks have to go to all those who helped to make this such a well organised and effortless event. From the willing volunteers of all ages who registered the participants and handed out the T-shirts and numbers, to the timekeepers, to those who manned the water stations, to the marshals, to the rubbish collectors, to the photographer, to those who ensured everyone had a sausage or hamburger and drink to mark a job well done as well as those sharing in the spirit of the day. Without all of you, the run would not be the great success it is.
We hope that every one of you will encourage many more of your friends and family members to join us next year. From in the hundreds, we would love to see this event burgeon into the thousands. It is a sure fire way of holding up Palestine to the public and of getting Palestine and Palestinians recognised as a vibrant state, culture and community. And more than that, the proceeds will help positive community-building projects in Palestine itself.
Now coming up is the annual Olive Kids dinner on Sunday 1 December 2013. We ask that you all buy your tickets as soon as possible. As many of you know, this is an event not to be missed. It keeps getting bigger and better every year and provides people with the chance of sponsoring the education of severely disadvantaged children in Gaza. It is a great way to end the year and to show your support for Palestine. Tickets at firstname.lastname@example.org.

“At first he was a Palestinian child, but his consciousness developed to have a national then a global and human horizon. He is a simple yet tough child, and this is why people adopted him and felt that he represents their consciousness.”
