Purpose

For over 40 years, Burma’s ethnic people have been oppressed by the Burma military junta. Rape, murder, destruction of food resources and villages, forced labor, child soldiery and torture are some of the crimes regularly committed by the junta.

Run for Relief is an opportunity for you to assist Burma’s ethnic citizens. Already, thousands of people across four continents have ran, walked, rode or wheeled to help people hiding right now in Burma’s jungles.

When you participate or support a Run for Relief event, you help buy food, medicine, and survival supplies for Burma’s ethnic people in hiding. You also support the ethnic relief teams who help the displaced people on the run in Burma’s jungles.
