The Sports Association of Ugandans in North America (SAUNA) will launch its operations in North America on October 7, 2023.
The high-profile event will precede Uganda’s national day independence celebrations on October 9, 2023.
“I am glad that we were able to find a suitable date and venue for the event,” said SAUNA Deputy Managing Director Thomas Muluka.
“The organizing committee is ready and operational for the launch of the event this year. It was jointly decided that it would be best to hold the event this year in the best sports and social conditions.”
The launch will be hosted at 1200 Lansdowne, Toronto, ON, M6H 3Z8.
The launch of the association’s activities will mark the start of a new chapter in the lives of those who appreciate healthy living, the need to work out, network in a stress-free environment and ultimately break social and cultural barriers among the communities.
“We are here to create a difference and change perceptions in communities. The rewards of a healthy population and sociable community are unprecedented,” SAUNA Director Fred Kaweesi stated.
“We plan to grow the SAUNA family over time through a variety of well-thought-out activities that will serve the interests of all communities and age brackets,” he added.
Toronto Mayor Olivia Chow has been invited as Chief Guest. Rene Kwol President and Director, Canada First Academy and Barry Samuel Director, Inside Out Studio will also attend the event.
SAUNA utilizes sports to promote healthy living/fitness, develop careers and strengthen cultural relations through various activities in communities in North America and Uganda.
