The 2013 Cougar Community 5K Classic and 1 Mile Walk is a fundraiser for the COVE Alliance. COVE's mission is to provide Uganda's neediest children with social services such as shelter, food, healthcare and education in an atmosphere that fosters acceptance, love and shared responsibilities. Education and vocational training focus on breaking the cycle of poverty and preparing the children to sustain themselves and their families in the future. COVE Alliance U.S. raises funds to support COVE’s presence in Uganda. The town of Kapeeka and the Diocese of Kasana-Luweero are home to COVE Alliance Uganda with its Children’s Outreach Program and site of the future St. Jerome COVE Center.
