About the Walk for Education
For 73 years, UNCF has provided financial and technical assistance to our 37 member HBCUs. Without UNCF’s support, many of the students at these HBCUs would not have access to higher education or the benefits that it provides.
Ask your friends, family and co-workers to sponsor your walk. Your participation in the Walk for Education and the money you raise supports more than 60,000 students a year, builds a more diverse workforce, and strengthens our community.
The UNCF New Orleans 30th Anniversary Walk for Education will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2017 in Audubon Riverview Park and Zoo.The race course begins and ends on the Riverview directly behind Audubon Zoo and winds its way through beautiful Audubon Park. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. rain or shine, and the USATF-certified 5K (3.1 mile) Walk/Run begins at 8:30 a.m. Visit the Audubon Park website for details about the venue.
