My dad will be running one of the most difficult marathons in the world, THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA marathon on May 20!
Over the next several months, I will be assisting my dad in his training and also will be focusing energy on raising funds for refugees.
The International Rescue Committee has been helping refugees all over the world for the last 83 years. As part of its work, the IRC is currently supporting 1.4 million Syrian refugees who have lived through the war for 6 years. Children make up nearly 50% of the refugees in Syria and worldwide.
Of all of the causes we considered, we most wanted to find a way to do something to help ease the suffering of refugees in Syria and around the world. We hope you will help us raise funds for this very important cause.
With Gratitude, Olivia & Alex
