BENEFITING: IRIS-Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services
EVENT: Run for Refugees Fundraising
EVENT DATE: Feb 07, 2016
I am running the IRIS Run for Refugees 5k on February 7th to benefit the nonprofit organization IRIS in New Haven. IRIS resettles refugees here in Connecticut, helping those who are escaping terror and violence start new lives here in America.
I have watched news stories and humanitarian stories over the past months of refugees fleeing terrorism and civil war and persecution and have felt helpless to do anything useful. I hope you will consider making even a small donation to help this great organization make a difference. www.irisct.org
