Rock and Run for Darfur in Bloomington, Indiana

The recent news concerning the consequences of international humanitarian aid organizations leaving Darfur, Sudan is quite sobering. Being overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of lives that will be affected is easy – but one group in Indiana is turning their concerns into action.

STAND students at Indiana University in Bloomington are coordinating a 5K run/walk and benefit concert called “Rock and Run for Darfur” where anti-genocide community members will support UNICEF’s humanitarian efforts in Darfur. These students are doing what activists in this community have been doing for years now – taking extraordinary action to save lives on the ground in Sudan.

The 5K will take place on March 28th, but registration information needs to be in by March 21st. See the event’s website and Facebook page for more information and registration forms.
