THE STORY:

Hi friends! Every year, Connecticut welcomes new refugee families and helps them start a new life in the United States. Last year, we welcomed 85,000 refugees after a rigorous Department of Homeland Security screening process. Refugees depend on non-profits like IRIS (Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services) to get settled, obtain housing, and find employment. In the past couple of years, I've become very acquainted with the amazing work that IRIS does for New Haven.

This is IRIS' main fundraising event, and I'd like to help out. Would you join me in helping them reach their fundraising goal? Even though I'm currently unable to run (going through physical therapy), I fully plan on walking briskly all the way to the finish line! I'll post pics!! Any amount is appreciated. Thanks!

-Maria
