This fall HART is participating in the Ride for Refuge… and we’d like your help!
We’re looking for 15 team captains to help lead teams, recruit riders and walkers, and of course, raise money in support of HART.
Our goal this year is to raise money to aid the mobile medical units that are serving wounded soldiers and civilians in the conflict in Eastern Ukraine.
RIDE Campaign Leader
HART has worked to alleviate poverty and injustice in Eastern Europe for the past 20 years.
The war in Eastern Ukraine has caused so much pain and sorrow, and has created 1.5 million refugees from the conflict. Many families and the elderly continue to live in war zones simply because they have nowhere to go. Most are without food, water and medical care.
Our goal this year is to raise $25,000 to help these refugees with the basic necessities of life and medical assistance. We are outfitting mobile medical-dental clinics that will serve displaced people and those stuck in war zones.
