With only four days to go to the first ever Namirembe Diocese Marathon (Mission House Run 2022), UAP Old Mutual has affirmed their support of the Namirembe Diocese activities, as well as the event itself.
During the lunch hour service held earlier today at the Namirembe Cathedral, offices, Stephen Lubowa the Head of Distribution and Marketing at UAP Old Mutual commended the diocese for playing their role in transforming lives.
“As UAP Old Mutual, we take transforming lives seriously. Our partnership with Namirembe Diocese will see us achieve the same in many ways.
But beyond that, to have an event that promotes healthy living, while promoting the construction of an institution that adds immense value to the community; is a great feat by the diocese. We therefore seek to reaffirm our partnership with Namirembe Diocese, and pledge unwavering support to all their activities,” explained Lubowa.
The function was also a chance for marathon participants to pick their kits as well as get clarity on a number of instructions about the event.
The marathon, according Rev. Samuel Muwonge, will be graced by both children and adults with the main objective of construction of Incarnation Chapel at Namirembe Hill, Kampala city; a Mission Chapel that will be used for prayers and deliverance.
Dubbed the Mission House Run 2022, this Namirembe Diocese Marathon will start and finish at the Namirembe Cathedral Gardens and will be officially flagged off by The Rev. Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira, the Bishop of Namirembe Diocese. A target of Sh300,000,000 is required. I appeal to Christians in and around the diocese, religious denominations, foreign missions and well-wishers to participate in the marathon.
Ticket fees are fixed at Sh10,000/= and Sh20,000/= for children and adults respectively. Participants in elevated categories will pay prices such as; Sh50,000/= (VIP), Sh1M Bronze, Sh2M Silver and Sh5M Gold.
