Why would Sarah undertake such madness you ask? Quite simply to ensure that the educational opportunities available to players at River of Life's sports ministry, Synergy, do not go to waste! One of the big financial strains is that of funding the school requirements of many of the Synergy players. This year 109 Synergy players have acquired scholarships for their education thanks to their football talents, but unfortunately such scholarships do not cover an array of other costs including uniforms, exam fees, books, healthcare and transport. Many of the players are from families who simply can’t afford these costs and so it is up to Synergy to try and find a way to ensure that these lads get all that they need in order that these scholarships are not wasted.

Event details

Masaka Marathon

For Sarah to complete the Masaka marathon she will have to be prepared for a course more gruelling that your average road marathon. It's 26.2 miles comprises strength sapping hills, uneven murram roads and the odd stray dog with only water and bananas for fuel (no special energy gels out here mate!)
