A team relay for charity

The Leiden Science Run is a 5 km sponsor run in relay style across the Leiden Bio Science Park; a team consists of 4 people who each run 5 km. The registration fee is €25 per team. Teams can ask family, friends and colleagues to sponsor them. The entire amount raised goes directly to UAF.

Leiden University organises this charity race for UAF, the foundation for refugee students, in cooperation with the University Sports Centre and student running association Currimus.

Are you not into running yourself, but would you like to contribute to this sponsored run? Then support one of the participating teams with your donation.

Foundation for Refugee Students UAF

All raised (donations & registration fees) will go to Foundation for Refugee Students UAF. The UAF has been providing support to refugee students and professionals in their studies and in finding suitable employment on the Dutch labour market. They are convinced that anyone who can use their knowledge can make a meaningful contribution to Dutch society.  They advise refugees based on their knowledge and experience, and build bridges between refugees, educational institutions, (local) governments and employers. The UAF is the oldest refugee organization in the Netherlands and has existed for 75 years.
