Join us in the RACE against famine by supporting a runner mile by mile as we run 26.2 miles on October 2 to raise money for famine victims!  See more

THE STORY:

Runners for Somalia

Fifty Percent of the Children in Somalia are now considered to be malnourished. The United Nations has officially declared a famine in two areas of Somalia. The Iowa UNA has come up with a unique way to raise much needed funding and keep public attention on the work of the UN. Currently it is the world's most severe humanitarian crisis and it has already claimed thousands of young children's lives.

Here’s how you can help. Four current and former Iowa Students will be running in this year’s Minneapolis Marathon, and have decided to dedicate their race to UNICEF. There are a couple ways for you to get involved! You can make a marathon pledge and donate $26 for each mile of the race or you can make any size of contribution as you wish. If we get just 40 people to make a $25 donation than our goal will be met!

Don't want to make an online donation? Then feel free to send a check made out to the Iowa UNA, 20 East Market Street, Iowa City, IA 52245. In the memo line write: Runners for Somalia.
