iACTion August

A month-long series of holistic wellness events with a purpose

As we collectively shelter-in-place and social-distance, we believe in the importance of finding meaningful ways to not only care for ourselves but to also connect with our global community. Join us for iACTion August, a month-long series of holistic wellness events with a purpose. Throughout the month, we will be joined by incredible facilitators who will lead a variety of workshops for adults and youth on mindfulness, yoga, soccer skills, and cooking. The series of events will culminate with a virtual 5k run! You are welcome to attend one or attend all! 

All event proceeds will directly impact and help sustain iACT’s refugee-led sports, education, and human rights programs. If you are unable to participate, you can still support the refugee communities we work with by becoming a monthly Sustainer of Action.
