Action Together CT is fundraising for IRIS, an amazing organization that supports refugees and immigrants in CT.
We believe that immigrants and refugees deserve the privilege of living in the United States of America and receiving basic human rights and respect. We believe that every person has equal value and that the global family is strengthened when all of humanity is recognized.
The USA invites 85,000 refugees to our country through a rigorous screening process by the Department of Homeland Security. IRIS helps refugees on the road to self-sufficiency by providing lifesaving support during their transition to life in the United States in CT. Help us support IRIS through our action and fundraising.
Our goal is to raise $5000 for the 5K IRIS Run for Refugees on February 5th. Join our team here to raise $ for our goal!
For our $5000 commitment, IRIS has graciously agreed to allow us to serve as an "Olympian" sponsor with several exciting opportunities including having our logo on the shirt and being involved in the awards ceremony.
You can sign up to run for the race here: http://www.jbsports.com/?page_id=169. If running isn't for you, consider joining us to support the runners.
