Join the movement to help provide urgent life-saving medical care to people who need it most by participating in our virtual 5K! We are the University of Rochester Doctors Without Borders Student Chapter. Our club’s mission is to raise awareness of the value of humanitarian aid, specifically to the fieldwork of Doctors Without Borders (DWB), to educate students about global health issues and the international response to those issues, and to engage the student population in fundraising that supports the work of DWB. With your participation, we will be able to raise awareness for promoting health equity and accessibility worldwide! The purpose of the Run Without Borders challenge is for students to run/walk in solidarity with the thousands of Doctors Without Borders patients worldwide who, unfortunately, must walk long distances to access lifesaving medical treatment. We also want to use this challenge as an opportunity to teach the campus community about the global impact of DWB. On an international level, DWB provides impartial and immediate emergency aid to marginalized patients in response to conflicts, disasters, and epidemics. The organization’s activities around the world include basic health care, surgery, vaccination, and treatment of certain illnesses that pose serious public health problems. By participating in the 5K, we hope that students can spread awareness regarding the work of DWB in eradicating racial, religious, and gender-associated barriers to healthcare.
