Dear Friends and Family,

If you know me, you know that I'm not super excited about exercising and that running in particular is not my thing. But in the past couple of years, I've done a lot of things I never thought I could do, so why not this? Last year an actor named Misha Collins (a pretty cool dude) and several of his castmates from a little show called Supernatural ran the Seattle marathon as part of a fundraising campaign to help end childhood hunger. I was so inspired that I decided to start running for the first time since high school, and I'm currently training to run 5k.

On Sunday 26th May 2019, I will be participating in the sixth edition of Race for Gift in Geneva, Switzerland in order to raise funds for an organization called elisa-asile. I chose elisa-asile because the plight of asylum-seekers and refugees is very close to my heart. People who are fleeing violence and persecution need help and support in making their case for protected refugee status. This organization provides legal help and advice, as well as educating local young people about asylum-seekers and refugees. It is a local organization that also provides on-the-spot assistance to asylum-seekers at the Geneva airport.

It would mean a lot to me if you would help me raise CHF 300 by 26th May, 2019, by making a completely secure donation on my fundraising page. Every donation counts! We can help make the world a better place!

Thank you in advance for your support!

Love,

Liliana

DÉCOUVRIR RACE FOR GIFT

Race for Gift est un événement sportif permettant à tous ceux qui le souhaitent de soutenir des organisations à but non lucratif de manière différente et dans la convivialité. C’est un événement qui n'existe nulle part ailleurs en Suisse.

Un défi caritatif

Chaque participant s’engage à collecter un minimum de CHF 300 pour soutenir une association de son choix.

Un défi sportif

Vous participez au choix à une marche de 5 km ou une course de 5 km ou 10 km, seul ou en équipe.

Race for Gift, c'est l'exploit et l'esprit sportif de tout un chacun, petit ou grand, entraîné ou amateur, mis au service de l'action solidaire lors d'un rassemblement festif. Le but est de ne donner aux coureurs et à nos partenaires qu'une seule envie : celle de revenir pour toujours avec plus de joie et de partage.
