ABOUT THE RACE

7 billion Little-girl-slider-800x269

 

Come support the work of 7 Billion Reasons in Busia, Uganda by competitively or recreationally running in the Reasons to Run 5K. There are 7 billion people in the world. Each of those 7 billion people represents a reason for us to do something outside of ourselves, a reason to serve.  Come join us on October 25 no matter what your reason is to run!

 


 

ABOUT THE CAUSE

 

7 billion reasons logo

7 Billion Reasons is a global organization whose mission is to go and share the love of Jesus Christ by meeting spiritual, educational, and physical needs in impoverished communities throughout the world.

In order to provide a quality education to the children in Busia, we have purchased three acres of land. We are currently in the progress of constructing our first school building, which will house four classrooms and administrative offices. Our goal is for Global Leadership Academy to be open in February 2016. Our vision is to expand our campus to have grades P1 through P7, expanding to include vocational or secondary levels, a medical clinic, a church, and sufficient land for crops.
