Central to Host “Hike to Help Refugees”

The Central College Volunteer Center is calling attention to the worldwide refugee crisis, by partnering with the United Nations Association of Iowa to bring a “Hike to Help Refugees” event to Pella. The hike is planned for the Fifield Recreation Area near Lake Red Rock this Saturday from 9 am to noon, starting with a three-mile walk and a six-mile run on the Volksweg Trail. If the federal government shutdown is still in effect Saturday, the hike will be held at Central College’s cross country course in the A.N. Kuyper Athletics Complex. Participation is $5 for adults and free for students, with all proceeds going to the United Nations refugee agency.
