Ugandan musician Alexander Bagonza popularly known as A Pass has this time round decided to run for a good cause.
A Pass has confirmed his participation at the Kampala Color Fun Run slated for September 10th, 2017 – a race that will start and end at Kyadondo Rugby Club.
The musician made the revelations this week on his official Facebook page.
“So as I was walking today around Acasia Mall, I bumped into some amazing fans and they told me about something called #TheColorFunRun. Cutting the long story short, I want to go not because they told me about it but because I came back home and read more about why they are doing it and I found out that it’s aimed to helping kids, and not one kid or two but millions of kids by providing them with books,” said A Pass on his Facebook page.
“Guys reading and learning can open up your mind and also open doors for opportunity and it also helps you be more bold confident and open minded about so many things in this world, this is an opportunity for you to help a little boy or girl in the village or big city center to learn something and grow up to be something bigger than they have ever imagined,” he added.
Color Fun Run recently partnered with Smart Toto for the movement #1MillionBooksTo1MillionKids aimed at buying and collecting scholastic materials to equip libraries in all districts in Uganda
with the first beneficiary to be Kaleke Kasome Foundation in Mpigi.
Color Fun Run is the most interesting and colorful social event in Uganda targeting family, and happens thrice every year (Once in Kampala and twice in any of the regions)
The 5 kilometer color experience has participants start in white, and are doused in different colors at every kilometer and climaxes with massive celebration; post-run color splash, plenty of House Party music and celebration of costumes.
The golden rule is have as much fun on the road, take as many photos and share.
Tickets for this year’s Kampala Color Fun Run are now available using the online platform App. The tickets cost about Ugx 30,000 ordinary, 100,000 VIP and 2,000,000 for groups and corporations registering as a team.
The public is encouraged to use the hash tag #1MillionBooksTo1MillionKids to popularize the movement.
