I’m the president of a nonprofit called Basic Dignities (www.basicdignities.org).  We’re working to raise money for a clean water project in Uganda right now.  We’re designing a water storage tank, deep well, and chlorination system for a community of 2,000 people on Kisima Island, Uganda.  I am holding a fundraiser 5k race on Saturday, June 24th in Crystal Lake Park in Urbana to raise money for the project.  Would you mind helping me spread the word about the event?

I’ve attached a flyer with the event details. The website to register for the event is www.UgandaRunFast5k.com.
