If Doug expects to be ready for his marathon in November, he will need to stick to his training plan during a three-week trip to Africa. First up is Uganda, which coincides with a 14-miler on his training schedule. Turns out that's almost exactly the distance from Tororo town to a little rural village called Maundo North, home of Covenant Mercies' children's homes.

For info on how to get involved, please visit RunFAR.org.

Select a race of any distance, in any geographic region, then prepare to run in it (or walk) on behalf of Covenant Mercies and the children we serve in Africa. After you register at RunFAR.org/register we will send you a sample message that you can send to your friends, to ask for their support as you run for this great cause. It's that simple!
