“Poor diet is an equal opportunity killer"

Healthy eating matters for refugees. That's why RUN provides healthy food and drinks, specifically breakfast and lunch on hiking days, as well as a pre-training snack and light meal after track training. These are essential as participants often arrive hungry, particularly near the end of the month when their government food coupons are running out.

RUN's sports programmes combine the mental health boosting effects of exercise, the outdoors, and community!

"It's clear exercise has health benefits both physical and mental -- but what if we could actually prove it was more important to your mental health than your economic status?"

Today, Alex is well over half way through her Gobi March challenge and now into the long march; a 70km slog, which will take her almost within sight of the finish line.

At the end of stage 3, Alex was in 85th place out of 221 remaining competitors and going strong.

We at RUN would like to thank Alex from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us in our rehabilitation of refugees through sport and beyond.

Go Alex!

Ally and Karen are now over half way through their Gobi March challenge. At the end of stage 3 they were in 101st place out of the 221 remaining competitors.

Today is the long march; at 70km non stop, this is the toughest day. Once they get through this, they are almost there.

RUN would like to thank these strong ladies from the bottoms of our hearts.

Go Ally & Karen!
