Why Run?

The journey to safety for refugees lasts many years and covers hundreds or thousands of miles. To bring visibility to this journey we’ve created the first annual virtual 5K run/walk: Running for Refugees.

Run or walk, it’s up to you, but you’ll also get a gift from us in return: a Project Refuge candle. Project Refuge lotion candles are handmade by refugee women.

Thanks to all of our sponsors including presenting sponsors: Live On Nebraska, UNO Goldstein Center for Human Rights and Bärchen Beer Garden.
