BENEFITING: Refugee Transitions
EVENT DATE: Mar 01, 2013
On March 1, 2013, I will take part in a 1.5 mile swim from Alcatraz across San Francisco Bay, to raise money for Refugee Transitions, a 501(c)3 charity.
The swim, 18-mile bike ride and 8-mile run may seem grueling, but actually pale in comparison to the path taken by the thousands of refugees who arrive in the USA each year seeking freedom from violence, persecution and hunger.
With your help we can give these inspiring individuals a chance by offering them home-based tutoring, English instruction, and a support network during their crucial first months in the country.
