The Annual 5K Run/Walk/Bike Event

The UWEMN (Uganda Women Empowerment of Minnesota) 5K Run/Walk/Bike Event is Back!!!  With your support last year, we raised over $5,000 to support families impacted by COVID-19 in Uganda. This year we are ready to create an even bigger impact with your support. Save the date and Join Us on August 28th.

A small group of passionate Ugandan women in Minnesota came together to build a bridge and support underserved communities in Uganda impacted by COVID-19. UWEMN believes in and nurtures grassroots initiatives in Uganda by partnering with community-led organizations that are supported or spearheaded by Ugandan women in Minnesota.
