Description

This is our Third Annual Impact Uganda 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 those who 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 Ukraine-Russia 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.  

True Impact Ministries helps orphans and impoverished children and families. 

We accomplish our mission through four specific approaches:

  1. Child Sponsorships
  2. Building Projects (schools, homes, orphanages, kitchens, water projects, etc)
  3. Vocational or higher Education Assistance
  4. Medical Assistance

Our ministry works directly with pastors and leaders in Uganda.  These partners are leaders of either orphan homes or Christian schools.  Over the last 15+ years, our organization has built school buildings, dormitories, kitchens, water projects and homes for these orphan homes and schools and families in need. Since 2011, we have offered child sponsorships to provide food, clothing, tuition and medical assistance for almost 300 children. 

All the children in our program attend quality primary and secondary schools.  Our support of the leaders at these homes and schools allows them to be the spiritual guidance for the children.  They provide teaching and training in following Jesus as well as how to live a Christian life in Uganda.  Our desire is for Ugandans to raise up Ugandans, so they are not reliant on a “hand out” from foreigners.  We support them so they can raise their children out of poverty.
