Hey all of you Borderstan runners: It’s time to lace up your shoes and venture across the river to run for human rights.
“When I think about a group of people running on an Arlington trail on a beautiful spring day, I also think about the people we’re doing this for — the people in Sudan who have spent their entire lives running, the children who have never known a home and the satellite images we see of communities that once were,” says Claudia Vandermade, organizer of the race.
“I also think about the prisoners all over the world, from Myanmar to North Korea to any continent on the map, who are lucky to even take a step in a small cell so far from their homes and families. We will be running for all these people.”
