All of us at MECA extend our gratitude to the organizers of The Big Ride for Palestine. For the fourth year, The Big Ride participants cycled through the UK in solidarity with Palestine. More than 200 riders joined this year’s event under the banner of “Freedom, Justice, and Equality for Palestinians.” Riders also came together to raise more than $30,000 for MECA to organize sports for girls in Gaza! (You can still donate through Global Giving)

MECA’s Gaza Project Director, Dr. Mona El-Farra took part in The Big Ride and spoke at the final rally in London on August 5. Meanwhile, MECA staff and partners in Gaza organized a Big Ride in Gaza.
