Educating Children in Uganda

Donation Goal: $2,500

All proceeds from the run support the mission outreach of Crossroads UMC – local, regional and international.

This includes providing food and emergency financial assistance, coats and boots to the unhoused, offering English as a 2nd Language classes, mission trips to help build homes in Guatemala, and continuing to support students in Uganda.   

Our mission in Uganda is all about educating children and young adults. All of our current students were at one point part of HUMBLE Primary School. A history of Crossroads' mission in Uganda is below.  

Our Ashburn Farm Run for Ugandan Kids is held every year on Thanksgiving Day and is the main source of funding for this important mission. Thank you for supporting us through your participation and/or added donation. Other funding continues from individuals who continue to support these students.
