Event description

Description

Run, jog, or walk with us this February to support refugees in our community!

Join the OISS & YPA team for the IRIS Run for Rufugees. This annual fundraiser helps to raise public awareness of the U.S. refugee resettlement program and vital funds to support services for refugees who are starting new lives here in Connecticut. 2018 marks the 11th time IRIS has held the event, and last year they had over 2,500 runners who enjoyed the scenic 5k walk/run in East Rock Park in New Haven. Sign-up to make this the biggest event yet!

To Register:

1. Before you register with our team, you must first officially register for the race using the Active registration page. The cost is $25 for an adult, or $15 for kids 18 or younger as of February 4th, 2018.

2. Once you're officially registered for the run, please register on this Eventbrite page so we can run and celebrate as a team at the end of the race. Details for the day will be emailed closer to the date of the program.

3. Optional: As this is IRIS' biggest fundraiser of the year, you will have the option to join the IRIS Crowdrise fundraising page to support the cause. If you do choose to set-up a fundraising page, you'll need to click 'set up your fundraiser,' and then click 'start your own fundraiser.' We ask that you include '(OISS)' or '(YPA)' at the end of your name so we can keep track of how much our team was able to fundraise for the cause! If you need an example, check out our Assistant Director's page here.

This 5k run is open to everyone, whether you are an athlete or not! If you have any questions before signing-up, please email molly.hampton@yale.edu. You'll receive more details closer to the race, but until then, dust off your tennis shoes and start moving!
