EVENT: World Refugee Day 5k

EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2017

THE STORY:

Hello, my name is Estelle – but my teammates call me Esta. I’m the captain of the women’s basketball team here at Nakivale. I love basketball because it helps me keep in shape and stress-free. It’s my favorite sport. But it can be hard to play here. We don’t have safe shoes and we don’t have jerseys for when we play games or scrimmage. And we don’t have a medical kit when members get hurt playing – and we get hurt often because our court is pretty bad. 

So, my idea – if you will support me and my teammates – is to get the equipment we need to be a proper basketball team. The shoes, the jerseys, the first aid kit. It will all make a big difference. 

We’ll be running in the World Refugee Day 5k. I hope we’ll have your help!
