University of Mary Washington club set to host triathlon

The outcry against the abduction of children in Northern Uganda has a strong voice in the form of the University of Mary Washington (UMW) chapter of Invisible Children. Through the efforts of UMW senior Travis Bishop and the staff of Invisible Children, a triathlon has been organized to raise money against the ongoing Ugandan travesty. The event format is a 300-meter swim, 3.7-mile bike race, and will end in a 1.2 mile run around the UMW campus. 

The event is scheduled to take place on main campus on Oct. 9. All proceeds will be donated to the construction of schools and dormitories for the children of Uganda.
