Maccabi GB Community Fun Run
The Maccabi GB Community Fun Run returns ‘in person’ bringing the community back together The Maccabi GB Community Fun Run 2021 returned on Sunday 29th August as the largest in person community event since the pandemic. Thousands of members of the community participated to raise funds for an incredible 76 communal charities.
Members of the community took part in either the 10km, 5km, 5km walk, 1km or the Tri-Run which combines all three distances.
First ever London Interfaith Fun Run unites communities in London and beyond A global message of unity and friendship between people from diverse backgrounds was sent from London on Monday 30th August as the inaugural London Interfaith Fun Run brought together hundreds of people from different communities.
The first-of-its-kind event held at StoneX Stadium in Barnet saw hundreds of runners challenge themselves and raise money for charities, the majority in London but some joining virtually by running in their own area as far away as Hyderabad, India.
There were plenty of exciting activities to experience at the London Interfaith Fun Run, such as an international food court, a prayer and reflection space, Cloud Nine inflatable Zone and an ‘Interfaith Zone’ with facilitated dialogue activities.
