Short description of the event: 
The Leiden Science Run is a 5 km charity run with teams of four people (each team member runs 5 kilometers) and takes place at the Leiden Bio Science Park. ISN Leiden volunteered with a running team and a coordination team (10 people). The coordination team helped out with the registration, handed out drinks and snacks to the runners and guided the way.
The goal was to raise money for the UAF, Foundation for Refugee Students. In addition to the registration fee of 20 euros per team, the organisers ask participants to engage family, friends and colleagues to sponsor them.
This year a record number of 83 teams collected a record amount of 10,566.37 euros for the refugee students association Stichting voor Vluchteling-Studenten UAF.
The UAF believes in the talent and perseverance of highly educated refugees and regards education as the key to successful integration.
