IRIS’ Run for Refugees is now Virtual!

Join IRIS’ first ever, virtual Run for Refugees on February 7th, 2021!

Run, walk, or bike 5k in your neighborhood, on your treadmill, or wherever you can be socially distant. 

And while safely is our top priority, you can still join IRIS for an interactive Run for Refugees Kick off party, Super Bowl Sunday, Feb 7th. Celebrate our mission to welcome refugees & immigrants from all over the world with VIP speakers, a special performance and IRIS refugee ambassadors.

Your registration and fundraising for our annual 5k provides refugees and immigrants with vital services such as housing, healthcare, job placement, education, and much more. 


Sign up at and please help spread the word!

Each registration comes with our iconic Run for Refugees T-shirt. We want to see you rock your Run for Refugees gear across Connecticut and the country! Tag us on your photos and videos and we’ll feature you on social media.
