3rd Annual Impact Uganda
We are inviting you to join us in this years 5K/10K FUN RUN. This is our third annual fun run, and this year we will have an in-person run in Denver on August 6th at 8am, and a virtual run option for those who can't make it (or don't want to run in public).
Funds raised through this race will go to support the children and families that True Impact Ministries supports in Uganda. Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war, costs of goods and services and food has gone up significantly.
More importantly, school expenses for our secondary and vocational students has greatly increased. Schools have increased tuition and are requiring students to bring more supplies each term. Secondary students curriculum has changed and includes online learning and excursions, adding more expenses.
True Impact Ministries is doing our best to meet these increases in expenses. We need your help. All proceeds from this years race go to the Susie Stewart Memorial Higher Education Fund.
