Support UNHCR (& Andrew) in Tokyo

On February 25, I will be running in the Tokyo Marathon to support the UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency). I’d love your support!

There are more than 50 million refugees and internally displaced people around the world. UNHCR supports these populations by providing everything from emergency assistance in refugee camps to ongoing advocacy and awareness programs. For many, UNHCR even provides the first key steps in vetting asylum applications.

For my last marathon, some of you got creative with your donations. One person donated based on the number of post-race Big Macs I consumed, another donated based on the kilos of sweat I lost in the Singapore heat. Reach out to me directly if you want to find a more interesting way to donate.

Your donation will be used by UNHCR to purchase family tents for use in refugee camps.
