We are pleased to announce the 30th Annual UNCF Walk/Run for Education which will take place on October 5, 2013 from 7:45-12 noon at Wolfe Park on Columbus’s historic near east side.
The event was originally developed to engage the Columbus community in raising money for UNCF to support not only its 38 member historically black colleges and universities, (HBCU’s) but the over 1,200 students attending college on a UNCF scholarship from Columbus, Ohio. UNCF is a beacon of hope to those young people who need assistance financing their higher education goals and currently has scholars earning their degrees at not only HBCU’s but also The Ohio State University, Miami University, Kentucky State University and Xavier University to name a few.
The event traditionally hosts over 850 participants who all share one common goal, to connect deserving young people to higher education. This year we will continue to walk on our new path through Columbus' historic King Lincoln District, while our running community will take the Alum Creek running path. We highly encourage runners to join us and share in our mission, ( this is a timed run and medals will be awarded to our top athletes).
Those interested in participating are encouraged to register individually or join a walk team. Get involved in this peer to peer fundraising campaign and impact a generation of hard working young people today! For more information please contact the Columbus UNCF office at (614) 221-5309.
Register to walk or run today, "because a mind is a terrible thing to waste!"
*Actual walk route 3.4 miles, run route is 3.25 miles.
