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.
To join, fill out form below.
