World Refugee Day Challenge (June 20th): Run Your Fastest 8km!
We're asking you to run 8km to represent the 8,000 asylum seekers in Hong Kong, and run your fastest as symbolic of our desire to speed up a notoriously slow refugee approval process.
Run together with us to raise awareness about the situation facing refugees and to raise funds for RUN's programmes that rehabilitate vulnerable refugees through sports and education.
