Description

Please join us for our second annual Virtual Waves of Education 5k- Run Toward a Better Future! Featuring a special theme of "Fill Up the Rooms". 

Waves of Education is a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide quality education to the children of Uganda. In order to do so, we are building a seven room primary school in the village of Galiraya, Uganda. In addition to building the actual school structure we will be providing students and teachers with necessary materials as well as resources such as desks, uniforms, books, etc.

Last year when we hosted this run, we had just chosen a location for the school and were eager to begin raising money to start construction. This past May, our school officially opened to 250 students and is continuing to grow!

To date, we have four classrooms up and running, a kitchen, bathrooms, and a storage room. By December, we will have the additional three classrooms completed as well as a library and a staff room. 

For this year's run, our focus is on filling up the rooms. This means that we will be using all proceeds to purchase items such as desks (which cost $30.00 each) and materials such as pencils, notebooks, etc. 

The run will be virtual again this year and will go from Sunday, September 4th to Sunday, September 25th. Remember to HAVE FUN and download pictures of you participating in the event; we would love to see them!

Please help the children of Galiraya get the quality education they deserve and to reach our fundraising goal of $30,000.

Thank you so much!
