Preparations are in high gear for the 2-day “Running out of Trees” relay from Kampala to Gulu.

The relay that will have 33 high profile and diverse runners run 10 kilometers each, is set to take place on Feb 7th and 8th February 2020. Flag off will be at Parliament.

The “Running out of Trees Campaign” spearheaded by Uganda Breweries Limited in partnership with Ministry of Water and Environment, was launched in October 2019.

The campaign seeks to rally Corporate Companies to come together and respond to the growing concern of deforestation in the country.

So far, a number of companies have come on board to support the campaign including Liberty Assurance which recently handed over a cheque of UGX 5,000,000 to UBL towards the run. Other companies include TOTAL Uganda and Stanbic Uganda among others.

The objective of this run is to rally every Ugandan to embrace April 25, 2020, the national day of tree planting on which 40million people in Uganda will be expected to plant and grow at least one tree.
