NYC native Chris Swain swims for World Refugee Day!

Tuesday, June 20
from the Statue of Liberty to Manhattan Island

In honor of World Refugee Day on June 20, Christopher Swain, a member of the United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) Westchester Chapter, will swim two miles across New York Harbor from the Statue of Liberty to Manhattan Island to call attention to the needs of the 65 million people around the world who have been forced from home by war and persecution, creating the worst refugee crisis since World War II.

YOU can stand with refugees around the world by sponsoring Chris’ swim. All funds raised on World Refugee Day will be directly contributed to UNA-USA’s Adopt-A-Future program, which supports education for children in Kenyan refugee camps.

Follow UNA-USA on social media on June 20 for live updates from Chris’ swim!
