MORSE ALWAYS WINS—especially when it comes to showing support for New Haven's refugee resettlement agencies. Just around the corner from Yale is one of these incredible organizations, IRIS.
IRIS serves refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Congo, among others, who have been granted legal status in the US and recently been relocated to Greater New Haven. The organization has been helping refugee populations since 1982. The IRIS Run for Refugees is one of their big annual fundraisers and one of the biggest 5k runs in Connecticut. In 2017, IRIS helped resettle 343 refugees in New Haven.Last year, Morse college students and Fellows raised over $3000 through the IRIS run.
If you have been meaning to show support, you can register to run (https://runsignup.com/Race/CT/NewHaven/IRISRunforRefugees) or contribute to our fundraiser until the day of the race, 2 February 2020.
