About This Fundraiser
This year I will be raising money again for North Korean refugees by participating in the Kim Dae-Jung Peace Marathon on June 12th (I will be doing the 5k).
Every year, North Korean refugees escape into China and try to make a long, extremely dangerous journey through other Asian countries before finally arriving safety in South Korea. Many never make it, either becoming slaves in China, sold for marriage against their will, or repatriated to North Korea and imprisoned in labor camps or executed.
I have had the immense blessing of being able to meet and work with students from North Korea, and their endless zeal for life, passion for learning, and a deep capacity for love. I want to help as many people like them as I can to reach safety and live a full, rich life in which they can achieve their dreams without fear or oppression.
It takes about $2,500 dollars for each refugee to safely make the journey. Can you help me raise a small portion of that to bring these people to safety?
Runners for R4R register to run in the Kim Dae-Jung Peace Marathon in Seoul on June 12, while committing to fundraise for Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights (NKHR) Rescue Fund. Our goal is to raise $20,000 total to help 8 North Koreans safely reach South Korea from China, where they face human rights abuses.
