KAMPALA, UGANDA- The National Social Security Fund has set a target of raising around Ush500million in their yearly organized NSSF Kampala Harsh 7 Hills Run aimed at helping to improve the structural look of government schools under the Kampala Capital City Authority.


The Fund, that collected Ush131million in last year’s run expects 1500 people to take part in this year’s run, with 25 companies already confirmed participation.

According to Patrick Ayota, the Deputy NSSF Managing Director, this 3rd Edition will take place on March 25 starting at the Pearl of Africa Primary School in Nsambya, a Kampala Suburb.

“This year two KCCA schools will benefit, Mbuya Primary School and St Paul Primary School. The run starts at exactly 6;00am and will cover a distance of about 21KM around the historical seven hills of Kampala namely Nakasero, Kibuli, Old Kampala, Namirembe, Rubaga, Lubiri and Nsambya,” said Ayota.

Five companies handed in their financial support amounting to Ush25 million towards the Harsh run. The five were Stanbic Bank, Insurance Company of East Africa, Uganda Retirement Regulatory Authority, Umeme and Clarkson Insurance Brokers.

The run is organised by the Kampala Hash House Harriers Club.
