Global Hands of Hope Uganda ( , in partnership with Lifesong for Orphans (, over the last several years has built 3 Safe Houses for over 200 girls and boys attending the Suubi ("Hope") School. Now we are trying to raise funds for the expenses associated with caring for these precious girls and boys with four full-time "House Moms" (social workers) and other resources. Ronald Nalera, president of Global Hands of Hope, plans to virtually attend the event and give an update on the exciting work in Uganda! The kids at the Suubi school will be doing their own 5K again before our event, with plans of footage of the Ugandan race shown after our event!
