Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we had to cancel our 5k, Running Water For Africa, for 2020. It is covered in our newsletter.

The 5k is our main fundraising event, and any contributions you can make help support Uganda in one of its worst economic crises to date and would be greatly appreciated!

Fort Portal Water Project
Opening Ceremony February 19, 2019

Members of UFI traveled to Uganda in February for the opening ceremony of the most recent water project in Fort Portal. 

From UFI President, Jane Holler:

Fr. Emmanuel had a spectacular day planned. We started with Mass at 10:00, followed by speeches, awards, entertainment by the students, ribbon cutting, the unveiling of the plaque, and lunch. All of this was followed by the Danielle Soccer Match where Danielle awarded the special cup to the winning team (primary school vs. secondary school; primary school won). It was wonderful, all the time honoring Danielle for her efforts. There were hundreds of guests in addition to all of the students and school staff. We extend our deepest thanks to all of our supporters for making this incredible event possible.

Thanks again to our angel, Danielle Burns, for making all of this possible!

Thank you to everyone who participated in, sponsored, and volunteered at the eighth annual Running Water for Africa 5K!
