Run for Refugees
Kick off Super Bowl Sunday at the 2018 Run for Refugees on February 4th!
Show your support for refugees at this annual fundraiser for IRIS, Connecticut's largest refugee resettlement agency. IRIS has welcomed over 1,300 refugees since 2014 from Syria, Afghanistan, Congo, Iraq, and beyond. With your help, IRIS meets their basic needs and empowers them to become self-sufficient and integrate into their new communities.
At our sold-out event last year, 2,500 runners enjoyed a scenic 5K through East Rock Park in New Haven. This year we've changed the course slightly so that we can accommodate even more participants. After your run or walk, join us at a warm, indoor party with live music, international food, an awards ceremony, and a celebration of our mission.
