St. Louis, MO is home to roughly 70,000 people of Bosnian heritage. St. Louis Bosnians and their families represent the diaspora created when they were forced to flee after the war in the 1990s. They made St. Louis their home by giving back to the community, contributing to the economy by creating their own businesses and setting down roots in this city. According to St. Louis City Mayor Francis Slay, the Bosnian community in St. Louis revitalized the entire St. Louis South City area. The first generation of Bosnians in the U.S. have sacrificed everything to ensure that their children will have better opportunities and lives than they did, by immigrating to an unfamiliar country, culture and language. Bosnian families have passed on their strong work ethic to the next generation resulting in some of the most hard working, well educated students who have been accepted to world renowned universities throughout the nation.

     The goal of Run 4 Bosnia is to help hardworking students in Bosnia who are less fortunate and cannot fund their education as well as students in St. Louis who cannot cover the expensive cost of education in America. We hope you will join us in the Run 4 Bosnia in an effort to collect funds for scholarships and help us support these students in their pursuit of higher education.
