Racing for Refugees

June 16, 2017

On Sunday, August 31, over 1 million people will run the Human Race and raise funds for good causes. And I am one of them!

Three causes will benefit from this unprecedented event, including the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) – the premier humanitarian agency working support 33 million refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) around the world.

Did you know refugees and IDPs in many parts of Africa are most vulnerable to malaria? Malaria is THE leading cause of illness and death among refugees. Nothing But Nets will be working to support UNHCR’s efforts to get lifesaving nets to refugees in the coming months.

But you can start to get involved now! So no matter where you are this weekend, you can be a part of the Human Race and support UNHCR – you can even join their team! Grab your shoes and get outside and run with us! You can register here.
