Come run or walk in Global Hands of Hope’s Safe House 5K family run/walk or 1/2 mile kid’s run to raise funds for the expenses associated with a safe house for young girls at risk for or already experiencing abuse in the village of Bukeka, Uganda. Global Hands of Hope Uganda, in partnership with LifeSong for Orphans, has recently built a safe house for 40 girls attending the Suubi (“Hope”) School. Now we are trying to raise funds for the expenses associated with caring for these precious girls with full-time “house moms” (social workers) and other resources.
The Safe House Run is on Saturday, June 8 at the Allers Shelter just up the hill from the Connie Link Amphitheater in Normal, IL. The race will be entirely on the Constitution Trail.
Registration fee is $35 for the 5K, $15 for the kid’s 1/2 mile run, and includes a t-shirt for the event if you register by May 25th. T-shirts and post-race drinks and snacks will be provided by our sponsors. Race bib and packet pick-up starts at 9:00 am the day of the race. Kid’s run is at 9:30, 5K at 9:50 am.
