Event Description

They have a saying in Africa. 

“You can run fast alone or far together”

Our goal is to bring our community together while reaching the ultimate goal of building a School in Africa!

This fun run/walk will take to the running path around the scenic lakes at Estrella.  

The initial money from this race will be used to build a fence for a school in Moroto, Uganda.  The fence will provide safety for our staff, volunteers, and future students.
