Chinese Community United Methodist Church in Oakland, CA has been partnering in mission with villagers in Kumi, Uganda, to build and launch a 7-classroom school, Kumi Christian Visionary School (KCVS). Today, more than 350 eager students are being served, most of them from families who subsist on less than $2/day. The school has a long list of capital needs that continues to grow: running water, electricity, tree planting, playground equipment, water well repair, entrance road, textbooks, desks, soccer balls, window panes - the list goes on . But where will the money come from?
The answer is BIKE RIDING! There will be 2 routes, 32 and 43 miles, beginning and ending at Castro Valley United Methodist Church. And to engage the whole community, a 7-mile HIKE to Lake Chabot is an option.
This year’s fundraising will go towards the long list of capital needs. You can help us meet this goal by making your donations through event day, when funds will be matched dollar-for-dollar!!
