Keeping Our Promise Inc. invites you to participate in Run for their Lives – a Virtual Run Walk Bike Wheel or Ride Race to support our local Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) resettlement program. The race period will begin June 14th and end on Sunday, June 20, 2021 at 5pm EDT to coincide with World Refugee Day. You can submit your race results anytime during this period. We want to honor the journey that our wartime allies endured in order to resettle in the Rochester area. For some of our SIV friends, this journey took years while their lives and those of their family members were in immediate danger as a direct result of having supported the wartime efforts of the United States.
Your participation in this event will directly benefit the SIVs that resettle in the Rochester, New York area by raising funds so that we can continue to provide them with a comprehensive resettlement program that includes: paying for their first month’s rent and security, fully furnishing their new home and offering a modest car grant among other services.
The registration cost is $35 per participant. Each registrant will receive a race t-shirt. The t-shirt guarantee registration deadline is May 24, 2021, but registration will remain open until June 20, 2021.
