2nd Annual Milwaukee Run for Refugees!
We could not have asked for a more perfect day for the Milwaukee Run for Refugees this year. Beautiful weather, delicious food from all over the globe, and a bunch of pretty awesome people...what more could we ask for?!
This year we had 72 participants which included 30 of our newest American friends. We had a lot of children participate and one of the little guys from the Congo almost ran the entire 3 miles of the race. It was unbelievable!
The women who are a part of Milwaukee's Newest Artisans were able to showcase their baskets and walked away with a few good sales from the day...AND more plastic bags that were brought by all of you!
Because of all of YOU, we raised a little over $1600 this year and will be using it to help local refugee families with different needs and for various activities for the children; to give them the opportunity to experience things they may not otherwise have the chance to.
Thank you so much to everyone who supported the event and made this day possible. You know who you are! :) We were so blessed to have such a great turnout and we're already looking forward to next year! Start praying for great weather!
