Fifteen hundred people will be running the streets of Gaza in 40 degree temperatures this week, to take part in the first UNRWA Gaza Marathon.

The 40 kilometre run has been organised to raise funds for the fifth Summer Games. Every year, the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees offers a quarter of a million children in Gaza the chance to learn and play throughout the summer.

UNWRA is aiming to raise a hundred thousand dollars. Chris Gunness from UNWRA in Gaza, spoke to UN Radio’s Lamis Anas.
