Impact Uganda - A Virtual 5K / 10K
Our new Fall Fundraiser is virtual. It's a Virtual 5k or 10k. Run or Walk or Hop your way to helping True Impact Ministries feed and support children and families in Uganda.
Funds raised through this race will go to support the children and families that True Impact Ministries supports in Uganda. During the Covid19 pandemic, the government lockdown in the country has caused many issues in Uganda. Schools, churches and many businesses are closed.
This means that hundreds of thousands of people are out of work. Children are at home where they are not guaranteed daily meals like they get while in school. Some do not even have beds at their home and need clothes and shoes. And some homes are not safe from criminals and animals and snakes.
True Impact Ministries is working with our in-country employees to provide assistance to these children and families. We want to buy bedding and clothing for those that need it. We are also sending food and supplies to these families each month. All this is more expensive during the lockdown as food and gas prices have increased.
What is it?
It's a Virtual 5K or 10K. Just like a regular 5K or 10K, but you run, walk or hop wherever you are. You can time yourself using an app like Strava, MapMyRun or MapMyWalk, Runkeeper or any other app. You can even use a stopwatch. After you complete your run or walk, return to the website to record your time. You can check out the leaderboard, and go out and run walk or hop faster to move yourself up the leaderboard.
You can complete your run or walk any time between October 2nd and October 24th. Post your results as soon as you finish.
What is the Distance?
What do you get?
Good question. Besides the awesome feeling that you know you are making the difference in the life of a child or a family in Uganda, you will have the option to get some cool swag. The swag option includes a Neck Gaiter with the True Impact logo on it AND an awesome looking T-Shirt. With the SWAG option, you will also receive a True Impact sticker for your water bottle or computer or wherever your stickers go. Choosing the swag option will add a shipping & handling charge to the total cost of your registration.
All swag will be delivered to your address 1-3 weeks following the race end date.
What does it cost?
The cost for the race only, either 5K or 10K, is only $35. The cost for the race plus the t-shirt and the neck gaiter only adds a shipping and handling fee.
