I am running the SMH Half Marathon for UNHCR to support refugees who are extremely in need of our support.
I am walk/running 12km to raise money for refugees in crisis. Please donate as much or as little as you can, it all helps.
My daughters organised a fundraiser at their school - selling home-made lemonade for $2,50 per cup in support of UNHCR's Emergency Response Program.
