5TH ANNUAL RUN FOR A REASON

AVONDALE 5K:

The 5th annual Sozo Children Run for a Reason is planned for Saturday, April 23rd, 2016.  The theme of this event is “Run for a Reason.”  100% of the proceeds raised by this adventure run will be used to “sozo” (save or rescue) vulnerable children in Uganda, East Africa. 

This race will be a 5K through the heart of Avondale. It will incorporate thriving 41st street, Avondale Park, food trucks, vendors, and a post-race performance by the Sozo Children's Choir all the way from Uganda. 

OUR REASON:

In 2015, we are hoping to purchase 28 acres of land in Kampala, Uganda to begin building “the Sozo Village” which will consist of 28 children’s homes, a church, medical clinic and school. Funds raised at this event will go towards this project and these children.

#MYREASON:

While we are thrilled you are joining our mission by running in April – but we would also like to ask: What’s your reason?   Let us know by using the hash tag: #myreason as you help us promote this event on social media leading up to the run. Tag @sozochildren on social media.
