The RUF story started in a conference room of a Chicago Public Library branch on the north side of Chicago. It grew over the past 4 years from about 10 people to hundreds of volunteers and supporters. It’s a learning curve for everyone involved, given how young the organization is, but it’s proven time and again that “I care” can move mountains. Or, given their success with one if their initiative, Via Transilvanica, at least make it easy to cross them.
