5k run will support international aid organization

Students will have the opportunity to support an international aid organization through Race to Heal on Saturday.

The race is a 5K run supporting Doctors Without Borders, a nonprofit organization. Fundraisers such as Race to Heal provide health professionals in Doctors Without Borders with funding to purchase medicine and medical equipment necessary to care for patients in the nearly 60 countries they serve in, according to the organization’s website.

The race will begin at 10 a.m. in front of the University Recreation Center, and a fundraiser at Red Cactus will follow.

According to the organization’s website, Doctors Without Borders provides aid to help victims of epidemics, malnutrition, war or natural disasters. Doctors Without Borders is neutral and acts independently of religious, political or military agendas.

All proceeds from both events will go directly to Doctors Without Borders.
