General Admission

Our 5k Walk/Run for Hope will take place on February 24th at 11:00 AM at the UCSB Lagoon Lawn. There will be light snacks, refreshments, and giveaways. Tickets are $15 for everyone. All proceeds will be donated to Because of Hope.

Women in rural Uganda suffer from tradition of men taking multiple wives. When these men cannot financially support the resulting families, they abandon these women, leaving them to care for an average of six children. The cost of living for an average family in rural Uganda is about $50 a month. Most of these women manage an average of $5.50 a month. Because of Hope’s (BOH) mission is to sustainably empower widows and orphans living in Uganda. One way BOH manages this is through their scholarship program which sends children to private schools and universities. All our proceeds will go towards this wonderful program.

We look forward to seeing you all at the 5k Walk/Run!
