Description

A Virtual "Run Where You Are" Event!

Acres of Hope Uganda is a special place where the lives of orphans and vulnerable children are being transformed academically, physical, spiritually and socially via a loving community, education and sustainable development that empowers.

The Acres of Hope Fun Run Where You Are is an event to help raise funds and awareness. By signing up for the run, you're helping us reach a $100,000 goal by October 2020 in order to meet national and local requirements for the school and housing facilities. The funds will be used to finish a new three-story school building, bath houses for students and staff, security fencing, and much, much more.

HOW IT WORKS:

  • You can run (or walk!) wherever you are. Northway Church in The Woodlands, TX is hosting this online registration/fundraising effort and the system requires a physical address. Again, you can run/race wherever you are.
  • The date that is set for the actual race registration is the target date. Some of our groups and churches will be hosting organized run/walks on that day, while others are doing their's on a nearby date. (If that's your group/church, be sure to select the appropriate registration option.)
  • We've arranged for the Acres of Hope children and workers to run on the same that we are! We're crossing the finish line together.
  • You don't have to be a part of a group or church to participate. You can run/walk by yourself anywhere you are, though it might be more fun to get someone to join you!
  • If you're not running on one of the designated group days, then you can do your run/walk up to one week before or after the designated race day.
  • Simply scroll through the list of events to find the one that best suits your context. If you know that your church or organization has a designated group run or event, be sure to look for that! If you're not part of an organization or group, select one of the virtual run/walk options.
  • Please note that locally organized runs, such as those in The Woodlands, TX, will have designated routes but will not be an official race. There will be no road closures or police or medical staff. Please run cautiously! 
  • Your registration fee will cover your race swag (a sweet t-shirt and more!) and a portion will go toward the overall fundraising effort. 
    • March 31 is the deadline to receive your Official T-shirt in time for the day of the run, April 18.
    • T-Shirts for registration after March 31 and all prize items will be shipped after the designated run date. (Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery)
  • Invite your friends to join you in your walk/run. Remember, even if they don't want to promote their fundraiser. At least a portion of their fee goes to help and maybe they'll promote your fundraising page to their friends!
  • Once you've registered, the real fun begins! You'll be able to tweak the provided fundraising page that you can use to promote your own run. Click HERE for a step by step guide.
    • There are three levels of prizes available to help motivate you toward your goal.
    • Raise $250 or more: Get an awesome vacuum sealed 20 oz. tumbler.
    • Raise $500 or more: Get the $250 prize plus a super nice tech shirt.
    • Raise $1000 or more: Get the first two level prizes plus an awesome hoodie!
