A virtual run can be a tough concept to get your head around. How does this all work? Am I running a race with other people? Do we all run on the same day? And how does all this help refugees?

For this virtual run, you can do it any time and any way you’d like. The main goal is to raise awareness for the refugee crisis and funds for the important work CARE is doing in Turkey. We’ve heard from people who are organizing a run as a Girl Scout project. Some folks will run on their own. Others have decided to incorporate it into their Thanksgiving celebrations — a Turkey Trot of sorts. (And these two little guys will be participating as well because running is their natural state of being.)

It doesn’t matter how you do it. It matters that you do it. Thanks to all of you who have signed up and we look forward to welcoming those to come. Join us today!
