    NBC 5 News

    As the Syrian refugee crisis makes headlines and people continue to debate America's refugee program,  a Connecticut non-profit hopes the all attention helps them reach their fundraising goals and is hosting a 5K race Sunday for the organization through a 5K race in New Haven.

    Each year, Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services (IRIS) helps 250 people escape persecution and settle in New Haven.

    The recent refugee crisis in Syria highlights the work done by this New Haven organization for the last 30 years.

    The 5K steps off at Wilbur Cross High School at 10 a.m.
