“It is a pleasure to be here today as we once again handover our sponsorship package to the MTN Marathon. Our relationship with MTN and this prestigious marathon dates back many years. This is mainly because of the value that we attach to this marathon and to the thousands of Ugandans who have benefited from the different causes over the years,” she commented.

“This marathon also gives us an opportunity to collect plastics and disseminate the message about recycling to all participants so that we limit the environmental damage caused when plastic is not disposed of properly. We shall therefore deploy plastic collection points along the MTN Marathon route,” she added

As part of the 20 years celebrations, the proceeds from this year`s marathon will go towards supporting the noble cause of maternal health. Last year, the run which attracted over 20,000 participants, raised UGX 600 million to support two different causes chosen by the participants.
