Two young Afghani brothers are sent by their parents to Europe in search of a better life. Over 4000km …walking! Could I even cover that distance with my running in a year? No way! But via Run4Refugees Tom and I together are hoping to do it in less than six months. Your donations go straight to these two brothers and others like them in need. Please support us…and them!

Run4Refugees has begun!

Today, the first day of the new year, marked the start of our charity project Run4Refugees! All of the cumulative training kilometers that we run between today and the finish line of the 100-km Biel race on June 11th will be supported by your donations and the money used to help refugee children and youths!

We just spent the past 5 days in Arosa, Switzerland, with our families, doing some skiing, snowboarding, and of course lots of snowy trail running! You can check out our Facebook page for loads of photos.

And if you haven’t sponsored yet, what are you waiting for? It is a huge motivation for us to get your support. A sponsorship of even only 1 cent per kilometer for both of us will only cost you about 40 Euro/CHF (if we achieve our goal of 4,000km)...and that can go a long, long way for refugee youths!

Just send us a brief email to with (1) your Name, (2) Who you are donating to (Holly, Tom or Both), and (3) the amount of your donation (cents per kilometer or a fixed sum). And you don’t have to pay until June!
And don’t forget to follow our Blog and Facebook page to get updates on our progress and adventures!

Thanks so much for your sponsorship!
