GuluWalk is a walk for the children of Northern Uganda who are being abducted by the Lord's Resistence Army and brainwashed into child soldiers. In attempts to avoid the LRA, thousands of children commute at night to the town of Gulu to sleep in safety. This war has been going on for 23 years now and the UN has named it the largest humanitarian crisis in history. This year, all the money raised is going towards building a youth and cultural centre in the town of Gulu, as a long term development project aiming at building peace in Northern Uganda.
Walk Begins at Branion Plaza (the cannon on the Univeristy of Guelph campus)
We will walk to St.George's Square and back to Branion Plaza
Saturday, October 24, 2009 - Registration is at 11:30am, Walk begins at 1:00pm
To raise awareness of the issues of Northern Uganda, to educate people on why these issues are taking place, and to raise money to build a youth and cultural centre in the town of Gulu!
