BENEFITING: American Refugee Committee

EVENT: World Refugee Day 5k

EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2017

THE STORY:

Hi. My name is Yiech Pur Biel. I competed at the Rio Olympics last summer in the 800 meters. It was an incredible moment for me. And I've had many more amazing experiences since then. 


On June 20, my fellow refugee Olympic hopefuls and I will be running in the World Refugee Day 5k in Nakivale Refugee Settlement in Uganda. Sports have the power to change young people's lives. It changed my life. 


And that's why we'll be running in the 5k. We want to help young refugees to change their lives and to feel hope through sports. We got that chance, and now we want to make sure others have those opportunities, too. So, we're raising money to do that - to find young people who need our support and reach out to help.
