About the Race

Come join us as we run for an awesome cause – showing Wilmington can make a difference in our global community – creating a better life to those who are deserving in northern Uganda.

About the Cause

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.

Through our partnership with Sports Outreach, Lifepoint sends a team to Uganda annually.
This trip provides Lagutu with much-needed medical care, outreach activities, leadership training, and it also serves as a catalyst for change in every life of those that come to serve from the U.S.

The team needs your help! 100% of the proceeds from this race will go to supporting the 30 member team traveling to Uganda on June 19, 2017.
