A team of six survivors joined thousands of runners at the weekend raising money for charity at the community’s biggest sporting fundraising event.

Survivors Harry Olmer, Mala Tribich, Eve Kugler, Alfred Garwood, Agnes Kaposi and Arek Hersh faced the 1km route with family, friends, March of the Living alumni, and Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis who started the walk.

The March of the Living delegation has raised over £4000 for the charity to fund future trips so survivors can continue to tell their stories.

This year’s Maccabi GB Community Fun Run saw record numbers of runners ascending on Allianz Park on Sunday, with over 7,500 participants and 85 charities and schools represented. 

MP Luciana Berger, Israel Ambassador Mark Regev, Chief Rabbi Mirvis and Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London, Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE, were all present.
