Thanks for supporting orphans in Uganda, Africa! All proceeds will go to the Orphan Relief Projects directed by Promise Kids A Future, Inc. Promise Kids A Future became a non-profit 501c3 in 2006 as a child placing agency in Georgetown, Kentucky. We received our Hague Accreditation through COA (Council On Accreditation) in 2014! As Director, I, Jill Baker had been on several mission trips to Uganda, Africa and after opening PKAF, knew that my heart was leading me to help the orphans in Uganda. We have developed the Orphan Relief Projects in order to help sponsor children with food, clothing, school supplies, and an education, along with opening a home for orphans. The Orphan Relief Projects are run purely on donations. I thank all of you for your prayers, your support and for helping promise one future at a time.
Runners will be able to view posted pictures, along the course of orphanage children and other orphans who are available to be sponsored for a monthly $30 fee through PKAF. As part of its Orphan Relief Projects, PKAF has arranged for over 75 sponsorships.
Packets will be given out the day of the race.
