Run for Refugees: 5k Run/Walk to support Immigrants and Refugees

Updated RFR Flyer

In a year of multiple global refugee crises -- including in Afghanistan and Ukraine -- Middle Eastern Cultural Programs has teamed up with Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services (IRIS) to organize a UConn-specific version of their annual Run for Refugees.

The run will be taking place on the Storrs campus onĀ April 9th, 2022 at 3:30pm, and can be completed either as a run or as a walk depending on each person's comfort level.

We hope to have as many students, faculty, and community members show up in solidarity, particularly in light of last fall's developments in Afghanistan and this year's ongoing events in Ukraine.
