BENEFITING: International Institute of New England
Hey all! We are taking part in a relay race from Boston harbor to the end of Cape Cod. It's about 200 miles in total and we'll be running from early in the morning of Friday, May 12th through the night and finishing on Saturday afternoon. As part of our run this year, we're hoping to raise money for the International Institute of New England which helps resettle and integrate refugees and immigrants throughout the region. The institute works with some of the most vulnerable recent arrivals to our country and offers: family and individual support services, education and literacy, economic advancement, and civic engagement for immigrants and refugees. These individuals and families are not only deeply in need of guidance in their new country, they also make our communities stronger and more diverse. In light of the massive humanitarian crisis in Syria, other equally difficult circumstances in a wide variety of impoverished countries, and in a general spirit of openness to those most in need, we hope that you'll consider giving to the institute.
