A team of Fargo Marathon Runners are raising funds to get the ASAH School for Orphaned Girls up and running again. The ASAH School was looted and damaged during the civil unrest in South Sudan; our students and families have fled the region, so we are relocating from South Sudan to the Moyo District of Uganda, just south of the South Sudan border.
Up and Running Again funds will cover our transition costs: $30,000 for transportation, medical needs, and clothing for the girls; $10,000 for furnishing a new house / compound in Moyo; $15,000 for enrolling the girls in school, getting new uniforms, purchasing necessary supplies.
Fundraising kicked off at the 5th Annual Get Your Panties in A Bunch event, March 22nd, and the marathon team will bring this fundraiser across the finished line on Saturday May 10th as part of the 10th annual Fargo Marathon.
