About the Walk/Run for Education

The UNCF 32nd Anniversary New Orleans Walk for Education has become an anticipated family-oriented 5K (3.1 mile) walk and certified run for corporate teams, fraternities, sororities, groups, churches, organizations and individuals who realize that "a mind is a terrible thing to waste" and understand the importance of "giving back."

For 75 years, UNCF has provided financial and technical assistance to our 37-member HBCUs. This important event provides scholarship support to students from low-income families, giving them the opportunity to earn a college degree and to help better our community.
