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.
Available sizes (cotton):
(measure across the shoulders)
Youth XS = 39cm
Youth M = 44cm
Adult S = 46cm

Your selected t-shirt is included in your pack with numbered bib and timer when you purchase your tickets. The packs will be available for collection on the day of the Run. You can also use your t-shirt from the previous year, so that more funds can go to helping the children.
T-shirts will be available for sale on the day as well.
