About This Fundraiser
Hi, I have decided to participate in Running 4 Resettlement this spring, raising money and awareness for North Korean defectors. As part of the team, I will be participating in a 5k in the Kim Dae Jung Peace Marathon in June, and fundraising for the cause.
To help the cause, I’m asking friends and family to help me reach my goal of $100.00 for the cause. All proceeds will be going to NKHR Rescue Fund, funding the rescue of North Korean refugees.
Most of NKHR's rescuees come from China, where they face threat of repatriation to North Korea where they will be put into prisons, tortured, and even executed. Because they have to live in hiding, North Korean refugees, especially women, fall victim to labor and sex trafficking. It costs approximately $2500 USD to rescue one person and bring him or her safely to South Korea.
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.
