Dead Sea To Red Sea Run
Going the Distance for Refugees
On March 13 a CARE team of 10 ran the famous "Dead to Red" run in honor of the 3rd anniversary of the crisis in Syria. The team was made up of CARE staff from Jordan and Lebanon - and Syrian refugees who volunteer in CARE's urban refugee centers.
They ran 150 miles from the Dead Sea to the Red Sea, starting from the Wadi Moujeb Bridge on the shores of the Dead Sea, climbing 1,755 feet as they wound through the Wadi Araba desert and then descended to the shores of the Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea.
Why? To bring attention to the humanitarian plight of more than 6 million people displaced inside Syria and more than 2.5 million refugees in the region.
