Running 4 Resettlement is a fundraising initiative devoted to raising money and awareness for the human rights situation in North Korea and rescuing refugees who are struggling in third countries.
Participants of R4R sign up to run in the Kim Dae Jung Peace Marathon, held on Sunday, June 12, and fundraise leading up to the day of the race.
Our contributions to Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights Rescue Fund (NKHR Rescue Fund) will enable NKHR to rescue as many lives as possible.
Please support us by giving to the general fund or to a specific runner here.
On Saturday, March 5, Rescue Fund volunteers hosted a fundraising event at Rocky Mountain Tavern in Itaewon. At the door, attendees were invited to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win some amazing prizes from generous donors Zweiter Stock, Wink, Magpie Brewery, and Oak and Barley.
To kick-off the event, the Rescue Fund was honored to have North Korean resettler and art student, Chunguk, share his experiences and perspectives through an interactive Q&A session with the audience.
Headlining the event was hypnotist Gabriel Dye, who enchanted the audience with his hypnosis expertise and advice for achieving success while using hypnotic techniques in everyday life. Dye’s show was part comedy and part inspiration and fully entertaining. We highly recommend attending one of Dye’s shows; the next one is scheduled for March 26. You can find more information about the show at: https://www.facebook.com/seoulhypnosisshow/.
All told, the Rescue Fund raised 640,000won to use for refugee rescues! We’d like to express our gratitude to all who came and donated funds, to Chunguk for speaking, Haegun for interpretation, Rocky Mountain Tavern, Gabriel Dye, Wink, Magpie Brewery, Oak and Barley, and Zweiter Stock.
The Rescue Fund has a couple of upcoming events which they will be announcing soon, so please stay tuned for further opportunities to be a part of the Citizen Alliance for North Korean Human Rights’ life-changing work!
