Please join us on a fun 60-mile fall drive beginning near NYC and through some of New York’s most beautiful scenery including spectacular water views and the colorful fall foliage!

About the Fundraiser!
The Bumwalukani Clinic in Uganda is a health pavilion that treats over 100 patients per day! Due to the heavy rainfall and persistent winds, part of the clinic (Station 5) needs remodeling. Currently, it is a raised tent covered with tarp. Station 5 is an educational consult room which enables doctors to communicate with patients privately. This facilitates education of their diagnosis, lifestyle and behavior modification, which helps improve the overall patient compliance. Our goal is to construct a more permanent structure that would greatly benefit the clinic and aid us in continuing to offer quality services to the community!
Any money raised beyond our goal of $750, will be donated to the Waste Disposal Unit, our next fundraising project!
