#RaceForRecognition Days 12-14 in Review


After 10+ months of planning, and 13+ days of non-stop running and cycling across the country, the LA2DC Genocide Awareness Campaign runners and cyclers completed the last leg of the #RaceForRecognition on May 7. Our LA2DC athletes completed almost 3,000 miles in 13 day, monumental cross-country journey to prevent genocide by bringing awareness to all past genocides. We invite you to take a look back at Legs 22-26 to see the our inspirational athletes and the Race For Recognition in action, and catch up on even more pictures and videos from the race on Facebook and Instagram. Thank you for your support of this important cause!
