Q. Why has Gaza Winter Walk 2021 gone virtual?
A. Due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus, we cannot hold this event in person. Your safety and well-being remain our highest priority. We want to ensure that you feel safe while taking part in this event.
We will instead host a ‘Virtual Walk and Talk’, holding the entire event on Zoom, while you take part in your 5 mile challenge in your own local park or neighbourhood.
We ask you to observe social distancing from everyone who does not belong to your household throughout the walk.
Q. Who can take part in the Gaza Winter Walk?
A. Gaza Winter Walk is an event which is open to anyone who is up for the challenge.
Q. How much do I need to raise?
A. Each participant must raise a minimum of £150. However, we are hoping that our enthusiastic participants aim for a more ambitious individual fundraising target!
Sadaqah and Zakat donations are accepted.
When setting up a JustGiving page, select ‘Start Fundraising’ on the top of this page and follow the instructions. Any donations collected offline, such as cash, must be transferred to Muslim Hands by the event date.
Q. What happens on the day?
A. We will be hosting a ‘Virtual Walk and Talk’, holding the entire event on Zoom. You can walk in your own local park or neighbourhood, while joining us on the Zoom link.
Tune in with other participants taking part in Gaza Winter Walk from around the world and enjoy fun entertainment and inspiring talks as you do your 5 mile challenge.
The virtual event will start at 12:00 PM using a link which will be sent to you closer to the event day.
Q. What should I wear?
A. We advise to keep an eye on the local weather reporting and dress appropriately in your warmest clothes as temperatures are likely to be low and the weather may be windy and wet. Please also ensure your footwear is comfortable and ideally waterproof. Any other protective and waterproof clothing/accessories such as gloves, scarves, and umbrellas are strongly advised.
