Why a Benefit Run/Walk?

Leave Your Footprint across the globe!!!

In Uganda, 65% of students dropout of primary school, in large part because school fees are costly and meals are not provided. 30% of girls dropout due to a lack of hygiene pads. These children often turn to child labor, crime, begging, trafficking, or early pregnancy. Join us for a 5K run/walk to support SOVCA, an organization that provides education to girls, orphans, and vulnerable children and provides jobs for villagers in rural Uganda.


The Deets

Check-in begins at 8:15am and the run begins at 9:00am. Sign up by 8/31/19 to be guaranteed a T-Shirt and refreshments, included in your registration! Families with kids and strollers are welcome, and will start just after the runners. Scroll down to view route details and maps.
