Assyrian international marathon runner William Odisho will run the 37th Annual San Francisco Marathon on Sunday July 27. As he has in marathons from Rome to Jerusalem and elsewhere around  the world, Mr. Odisho will carry a full-size Assyrian flag as he runs the 26 mile route through the streets of San Francisco and twice across the Golden Gate Bridge, raising awareness of Assyrians in the Homeland and raising money to assist them.


You can still donate $1 for each mile William Odisho ran in San Francisco on July 27. Proceeds will go directly to the AAS-A Refugee Relief Fund to assist Assyrians who have fled their homes following the fall of Mosul and the continuing conflict in Iraq.
