Lifepoint Uganda 5K
Sleep in on Saturday and come out Friday evening instead! Spend your April Fools Day with Lifepoint Church and bring your creativity! Silly (Family Friendly) costumes are welcomed and encouraged to bring laughs to our April Fools Day Race! What’s more fun than an evening 5K? One with costumes of course! Bring the family, have some fun running and stay to enjoy the Post Race Party.
In 2010 Lifepoint Church began a partnership with Sports Outreach Institute (SOI) and began supporting Lagutu Village in Northern Uganda. This village was reeling from war and on the verge of extinction. But with support from Sports Outreach & Lifepoint Church, this village has been reborn. Wells for fresh water were dug; a school and church were built; and most importantly, children were fed.
To date Lifepoint Church contributes to the child-feeding program, paying teacher’s salaries to sustain the school, and a host of other items that are helping this community breath new life. We are reaching the next generation to raise them up to change not just Lagutu, but to help transform Northern Uganda.
