About This Fundraiser
Last year I tutored a North Korean re-settler for a while. One time we got pizza. I was complaining about the general state of Korean pizza (it's not great, believe me): he stopped with a slice of pizza halfway from his mouth, a strand of cheese dripping queasily down, made eye contact, held it awkwardly.
-- In North Korea, there is no pizza, is what he said.
-- Oh, get the fuck out, is what I wanted to say.
I'm running ten kilometres in a couple of weeks to earn money to help other wiseacres like that guy escape North Korea, and re-settle in the South. If you have ever made a 'so which Korea is it that you live in' joke please make amends for this by donating!
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.
