Run for Rights & Palestine

Kildonan Park
Registration: 8:30 am to 9:00 am
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Everyone is welcome!

The route is along Red River on Scotia Street, Kildonan Park to St. John's Park and back.

The 5 Km or 10 Km event offers participants a choice of running, walking, cycling or rollerblading in support of social justice and human rights locally and globally.

Run for Rights is organized by a coalition of 17 Winnipeg organizations working for human rights and social justice — including CanPalNet-Winnipeg. Note that there is no minimum donation or pledge amount required to participate.

Support the struggle for human rights by collecting pledges for or making a donation.


It is a grassroots solidarity organization, not associated with any political party, nor any particular religious or cultural community.

It is comprised of Winnipeggers, including Palestinians and Jews, who together, are committed to building a lasting and meaningful peace in Israel-Palestine.

In addition to sending delegates to the Occupied Territories to participate in International Solidarity Movement witnessing and human rights campaigns, CanPalNet has twice curated the "Canada Palestine Film Festival" at Winnipeg’s Cinematheque theatre.
