THE STORY:

My father in law escaped the former Yugoslavia and walked across Europe in his pursuit of freedom. He battled the elements, scaled mountains, suffered hunger, confronted fear and uncertainty, and outwitted people trying to harm him. He was homeless for a time in a foreign country where he did not speak the language - far from his parents and siblings whom he could not even tell he was leaving because he feared for their safety. His courage, optimism, strength, and perseverance are directly responsible for the loving family I have today with his American born son and our two children. Sadly, he passed away this fall. In his honor, I'm running a 5k to raise money for IRIS, a nonprofit that supports refugees seeking a better life, just as my father in law did. I'll be carrying him in my heart each step of the way, full of gratitude for each step he took on his treacherous journey.  Please consider joining me in support of other refugees and immigrants by donating to my crowdrise campaign.
