I will be participating in the Run for Refugees 5K on February 5th 2017 to help raise funds for New Haven's Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services (IRIS). This is a wonderful organization that helps families find a new home here in CT, helps them find access to medical and education services and supports the families in learning English and finding their first job here in America. My incredible friend Heba has been working closely with this organization over the past couple years to help Syrian families resettle here in New Haven. I have had the pleasure of getting to spend time with some of these lovely families and it has been such a humbling experience. I hope you will help in whatever way you can!
