We are pleased to announce the 33rd Annual UNCF Walk/Run for Education which will take place on September 24th from 9:00 am to 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 37 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 on our 5k route overlooking the beautiful Alum Creek. We highly encourage runners to join us and share in our mission along this timed route. Medals will be given to the top 3 runners or walkers.
Those interested in participating are encouraged to make a meaningful donation and can register individually or join a walk team. 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, but a wonderful thing to invest in."
