About the Walk/Run for Education

Whether you run or walk the route, register today to change a student's life!

We are pleased to announce the 36th UNCF Columbus Walk/Run for Education.

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, (HBCUs) 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 HBCUs but also The Ohio State University, Miami University, Kentucky State University and Xavier University, to name a few.

The event traditionally hosts more than 850 participants who all share one common goal: to connect deserving young people to higher education.
