For refugees who have escaped violence and danger by foot, the image of running is incredibly poignant. When Jen Crutchfield sets her mind on accomplishing something, she just goes out and does it.
Jen decided that 2010 would mark her first full marathon, and on December 15, she completed the 26-mile Tucson Marathon. In honor of the thousands of miles refugees travel to escape violence and fear, Jen challenged friends and family to support her to raise funds for The Welcome to America Project.
Her efforts raised over $1,000 to support WTAP, meaning 5 families can receive a warm welcome and desperately needed basic necessities. Congratulations Jen and thank you for your extraordinary efforts!
