Where Will You Walk?

October 23, 2008

On Saturday, October 25, I am walking for the children of northern Uganda.

In the midst of the country’s 22-year conflict, over 1.7 million people have been forced to flee their homes and live in camps where huts are packed tightly together, access to clean water is limited, and disease and violence are rampant. On top of that, well over 25,000 children have been abducted for use as slaves and soldiers throughout the course of the war.

I am walking to tell this story, and to fundraise in support of programs in Uganda that focus on education, rehabilitation and outreach for the country’s war-affected youth.

GuluWalk is dedicated to providing a future for these children. That’s why I am walking and that’s why I need your help.

Donate to me today and help me reach my fundraising goal. Better yet, join me and sign up at www.guluwalk.com.

Thank you in advance for your support!
You can sponsor me through this site.

You can also sponsor my friend, who I will be walking with here.
