Bike to Uganda


the event

Bike to Uganda is Building Tomorrow’s most successful fundraiser to date and, since it’s inception, thousands of people across the country have biked more than 45,000 miles and raised over $55,000.

Bike to Uganda is a unique, student conceived and executed event, pitting man vs. distance. No matter the campus, the ultimate goal for the event is the same – to bike the distance from one’s campus to Kampala, Uganda, raising funds along the way to build a Building Tomorrow primary-level academy for 325 kids in Uganda.

Each chapter sets out stationary bikes in a high-traffic location on campus for up to five days. Throughout the event (and many times, in the weeks leading up to it) chapters host competitions for who can raise the most money or the group that has the most members participate. Chapters also schedule a wide variety of entertainment including performances by a capella and dance groups and celebrity appearances by well-known professors, deans, and athletes.
