Frequestly Asked Questions

Do I run by myself or with a group?

It’s up to you! Even if you are racing alone, you are running or walking with participants across the Sacramento region - either in person or virtually! But if you feel so inclined to gather a group to spread love and awareness, that will only increase the fun in our opinion!

If you are participating in person, we are releasing groups in waves every half hour from 10am-12pm.

What's the benefit of participating virtually?

By participating virtually, you can complete a self-determined distance by running, walking, or using other forms of physical activity, and unlike traditional events where all participants gather at a specific location and time, participants in a virtual fundraiser can complete the distance in their own chosen location. This option provides greater flexibility for larger groups or for those who have a specific distance or place in mind to complete their goals!

While it is not required, a great way participants in the Miles for Refugees will be “connected” is by tagging World Relief Sacramento social media accounts, direct messaging any pictures you would like to share, or using our event hashtags on Instagram.

Is there a set fundraising goal?

You are not personally expected to raise a certain amount of money. We are grateful for every hard-earned dollar that participants are able to give and raise. All the funds you raise directly impact vital programs for refugees arriving in Sacramento.
