UGANDA MARATHON FOUNDATION
In alignment with the United Nations Global Goals framework, The Uganda Foundation is dedicated to ensuring sustainable development, promoting economic and social empowerment and independence from aid.
This is achieved using a collaborative partnership approach as we work with people on the ground in Uganda and empower them with the skills, opportunities and resources they need to drive positive, long-lasting change for themselves and their communities.
OURLOOP supports the Uganda Foundation and every dollar raised is reinvested back into the Masaka community and projects.

Healthy, athletic people with NO family history can and do get Breast Cancer. I did.
For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.

MARATHON DES SABLES
RUNNING FOR A CAUSE
For the last three decades, all MARATHON DES SABLES participants have agreed: there’s no denying the physical performance, but the MDS experience is above all a human adventure. During those ten days in the Sahara, sharing is the driving force that helps you keep moving on.
OURLOOP Founder, Angelique Byrd, will be running for the project causes. 100% of donations and pledges will go to Uganda Foundation, Pink-A-Thon, and OURLOOP educational resources.
