Running for God and for Africa

The Amy For Africa mission, started in May 2013 by marathon runner Amy Compston and journalist Mark Maynard, has three goals:

  1. As a fundraisier to provide aid to impoverished areas in Uganda and southern Sudan.
  2. As a tool to share God’s amazing and unfailing love through testimonies from Amy and the AFA team.
  3. As an outreach for Jesus Christ to the community we serve.

Amy, a 32-year-old mother of four, wife and fulltime nurse, is the face of Amy For Africa, which is a federally approved 501(c)3 organization. Team AFA has more than 30 runners participating along with us and many others behind the scenes.
