  • First Marathon in the West Bank

    Bethlehem, West Bank

    “Everyone has the right to freedom of movement.”

    — Article 13, Universal Declaration of Human Rights

    UPA is partnering with Right to Movement, a non-profit organization based in Denmark, to hold the first marathon in the West Bank, on April 21st, 2013. Israeli restrictions on Palestinian movement prevent organizers from establishing a single, unimpeded 42 kilometer route. Instead, the marathon will make four loops around Bethlehem to highlight the Palestinian lack of freedom of movement.

    Donate to support the marathon and Palestinian freedom of movement.
