WARSAW, POLAND — Rob Spieler, our very own local Renegade Relief Runner has kept in touch with us since September while in the battlezones of Ukraine providing us with updates and photos throughout.

If you missed the story in August, Rob is a Sharon Springs resident, and Renegade Relief Runner who has gone back to Ukraine for his 5th time since March 2022 to help the Renegade Relief Foundation, a nonprofit that provides on-the-ground assistance to those suffering from the conflicts in Ukraine. Rob is a part of a large group of volunteers from all over the world.

The group has presently been working to collect and deliver medical and humanitarian supplies from surrounding areas to Ukraine during a time of increased military activity. 

From Rob:


Warsaw, Poland 

My time has come to an end on this trip as I make my way back to the United States. Not much excitement since my last contact with you (on 11/2). We spent time in Bucha getting the vehicles serviced and our warehouse organized. Tales came through of the hospital in Kramatorsk that we delivered equipment to, coming under artillery fire, forcing them to relocate. All were unharmed. A few of us volunteers were heading home for the holidays, so I jumped in a car that was heading to Warsaw. This will probably be my last trip to Ukraine for a while, looking back on all the people I've worked with from all over the world and all the things we've done, and that the group will continue to do. With things going the way we see in the world, I doubt I'll be idle for very long. Thank you all for your support while I've been away. We’ll see where the next adventure is.

Big thanks to Mr. Rob Spieler for volunteering his time to such a significant cause and most importantly for taking the time to keep in touch with us over his journey.

The Renegade Relief Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) Charity that assists the Renegade Relief Runners effort’s in conflict zones by providing: Delivery of critical medical aid into areas with difficult access and supporting medical evacuation, delivery of food and water purification to areas deprived of basic needs, and supports/aids logistics and developing networks to provide continuing aid to areas most heavily impacted.
