Run to help kids in Ukraine

Running this 5K has a bigger reward than a medal. This year, the money raised from R(un) for One is going to help Lifeline’s adoption partners in Ukraine. Lifeline has been working to help families in Ukraine. So far, this help has included:

  • Funding a van to carry food and supplies across the Ukrainian border.
  • Giving 285,000 meals to displaced Ukrainian families in Romania and those still in Ukraine.
  • Sending monthly funds for 13 months to the REGEN Foundation in Fagaras, Romania, which is providing housing, utilities and food for Ukrainian families and children.

“Last year’s R(un) for One was a great experience for our whole family. It’s fun to participate and you know you’re helping Lifeline change lives of vulnerable kids around the world.

We participated in R(un) for One last year and it was awesome! It’s great to know you can make a difference while doing something as simple as a 5K.”
