As one of the strategies to raise funds for the University, the Makerere University Endowment Fund (MakEF) –was established in 2014. MakEF under its mandate to achieve long term financial sustainability for the University started the MakRun.
The first edition of the MakRun in 2017 was a great start, thanks to contributions from The Right Honourable Speaker and Members of Parliament, Corporate sponsors such as; dfcu Bank. Centenary Bank, Tullow Oil, NSSF, Coca Cola, NBS Television, BBS Telefayina and the Nation Media Group as well as Gallant Alumni, Staff, Students, well wishers and friends of Makerere University.
Thanks to your support, we collected UGX247,845,000 (Two hundred forty seven million eight hundred forty five thousand Uganda Shillings).
All proceeds from the MakRun are aimed at supporting the Fund’s inaugural project, the “Students Centre”, estimated to cost UGX15 billion.
We are therefore once again rallying your support for this noble cause, by urging you all to warm up and get ready to participate in the MakRun 2018 scheduled on Sunday, 25th March 2018, starting at 6:00am in the Freedom Square with warm up exercises.
Tickets are now on sale at UGX15,000/= for students, UGX25,000/= for the Silver and UGX50,000/= for the Gold. Tickets may be obtained at the following locations;
