Sponsor Information

We are excited to announce the 9th annual 5K to be held in Bluemont Park. Once again the Tuckahoe Elementary School community will support the Arlington Academy of Hope (AAH) school and students in Uganda. The race will be held on Sunday November 5, at 8:00 a.m. The schools are working together to combine resources, promote even greater community involvement, continue to encourage families to share in a healthy and fit lifestyle as well as raise awareness of our role in the global educational community. We hope you will join us as a sponsor!

The Arlington Academy of Hope (AAH) www.aahuganda.org is an Arlington based non- profit organization that was founded by John and Joyce Wanda, who grew up in Uganda. After winning a diversity lottery visa they came to the U.S. and settled in Arlington. Their children experienced the Arlington Public Schools and John and Joyce wanted to provide a similar experience for the children in their native Uganda. In 2004, they opened a primary school. They have since built two health clinics. They also provide scholarships for secondary school students in order to continue their education beyond primary school.

Through the Tuckahoe partnership – and with your help - we will contribute funds to Arlington Academy of Hope to assist in building a healthy educational environment for our sister school in Uganda. Donations support tuition, materials, teachers, infrastructure, and healthcare for these Ugandan students.

Your donation is tax deductible and would be invaluable to the Arlington Academy of Hope school programs in Uganda. Sponsors receive an array of promotional and marketing exposure with various levels of giving. We hope that you are willing to support us by sponsoring our 5K run. We are happy to accept sponsorships from businesses as well as individuals/families. Thank you!
