Australians for Palestine’s annual run was bigger and better than ever this year with over 600 people attending. Judging from the photos below, the event attracted a mix of serious competitors who had trained long and hard to claim medals and times, walkers who just wanted the exercise and the company and plenty of others who were there to enjoy a wonderful family day in Melbourne’s most beautiful gardens under the warm spring sun.
Three splendid bands had volunteered their talent and time to entertain everyone throughout the day and Kamahl Mashni’s famous BBQ’d sausages were already sizzling and ready for the hungry crowd once the run was over. Children and adults alike took advantage of the face painting service offered while people collected their T-shirts and registered. The queues were incredible, but everything ran like clockwork thanks to the tireless efforts of our long-time supporters and also members of Olive Kids.
