At Unity Miles, we run for one race- the Human Race!
We are running to raise support for immigrants and unity between the U.S. and Mexico. In solidarity with immigrants and refugees, we are running and dedicating our miles to RAICES, which helps immigrants navigate legal battles and offers advocacy and support to refugees. Use #unityrun in your run posts to join the cause.
The U.S.-Mexico border is 1,954 miles, and that is our first milestone, to reach $1,954 in donations and miles ran.
