They have a saying in Africa.
“You can run fast alone or far together”
Our goal is to bring our community together while reaching the ultimate goal of building a School in Africa!
This Circle it fun run/walk will take to the running path around the scenic lakes at Estrella.
The initial money from this race will be used to build a fence for a school in Moroto, Uganda. The fence will provide safety for our staff, volunteers, and future students.
