On Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, a Run for Refugees will be held at Long Branch Park, 3813 Longbranch Park, Liverpool. This event is organized by Adrian Mellinger and InterFaith Works of Central New York.

Adrian Mellinger is organizing the Run for Refugees on Sept. 30.

“I grew up internationally, so I’ve always had a heart for international issues and affairs,” explains Adrian Mellinger, organizer of the event. “With issues such as the Syrian refugee crisis and the current political climate, I felt like I needed to do something to support local refugees. I’m also an avid runner, so it made sense for me to use my love for running and host a 5K. Ultimately, my desire is to see the Syracuse and CNY community as a whole support our refugees in a fun and exciting way.”

This is a day to raise awareness and celebrate refugees in the Syracuse area and all throughout the nation. All money raised will go to benefit the Center for New Americans through InterFaith Works in Syracuse, NY. The Walk/Run is a USATF certified course, however, this is not a timed race. Children (and strollers) are welcome. Feel free to bring your dogs (on leashes only). Come enjoy beautiful fall weather and have some family friendly fun!
