This virtual run couldn’t come at a better time!
Amidst the chaos of the world right now, we need some joy, some hope and something to focus on.
We can still run and we won’t stop!
In partnership with The Love Mercy Foundation, we are so excited to bring you a virtual run that will connect from afar and have an impact on global mothers in northern Uganda.
This is a 10km in May event.
You get to pick the interval though. It could be 10km each week, it could be 10km for the month. You could do 10km every day if you want!
Pick your interval (challenge yourself) and commit to it. We are doing this together.
The event takes place virtually so you can run from anywhere in the world.
Run your usual track, your treadmill, around your block or on the trails. Make sure you keep a safe distance from others and follow the government guidelines for social distancing.
Share your runs on social media with the hashtag #runnerlovermother #themotherrun so we can see!
We are offering three different entry levels as everyone is in a different circumstance as a result of COVID-19. We want to open up access to everyone, no matter where you are or what your situation.
The $30 and $15 entry will go directly toward the Maternity ward at the Kristina Health centre in northern Uganda. It will contribute to training and up-skilling midwives so they can be best prepared for deliveries in a rural community, as well as providing birthing kits to the facility for safe deliveries.
With the free entry, you will still have to checkout with your details, and you can even sponsor a friend to run for this cause with you!
All donations made with event sales are going directly to the maternity project at the Kristina Health Centre in Northern Uganda. The clinic has been delivering babies safely since 2017 and has seen 663 precious babies brought into this world. We want to support this project, so that no woman bears the pain of losing her baby during childbirth. Read more about the project here.
So will you join us? The event starts on the 1st of May but you can join at any time. We welcome you to run with us! Sign up here.
