In 2017, Hurricane Harvey forced us to hold a Virtual Walk for Education. This year, we're back on track (literally) and ready to walk!
The annual UNCF Houston Walk for Education will be held Saturday, September 8, in Tom Bass Park. (Visit UNCF.org/HoustonWalk to register!) To make this event the best ever, UNCF Houston is inviting area community and business leaders to attend its kick-off Mayor's Luncheon. Network with attendees and learn about the work UNCF is doing to help area students get to and through college.
Walkers and runners can make an impact on our local community by raising funds for education. Walk participants help to save our historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and provide financial assistance for the children from our community.
Facts about the walk:
- Began in 1985, with Olympic gold medal winner Carl Lewis serving as honorary chair for 16 years.
- Has raised more than $5 million since its inception and $230,000 in 2016.
- Draws more than 1,600 walkers from corporations, community organizations, and individuals from the greater Houston area.
- One of UNCF Houston's most cost efficient events; its expense ratio never exceeds 10 percent.
Tickets for the luncheon are $150 and sponsorship opportunities are available.Learn More
