Australians for Palestine designed the popular t-shirts used in the annual Run for Palestine held in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Perth.
The white t-shirts feature a version of Handala the much-loved iconic faceless refugee child first created by Palestinian artist and cartoonist Naji Al Ali. The logo was designed by artist Dora McPhee for Run for Palestine. The text reads: RUN FOR PALESTINIAN HUMAN RIGHTS.
The t-shirts are unisex and come in two types: normal white cotton and the Dri-FIT t-shirt preferred by runners. Both t-shirts carry the Run for Palestine logo.
