2018 Chicago Walk for Education
The 35th UNCF Chicago Walk for Education is a broad-based community fundraising event to support deserving students with the financial assistance needed to reach their goals of going to and through college. Participants can choose to walk, run, bike or skate. Please note that children under the age of 14 must be supervised by an adult.
There are many ways you can participate:
- Create a team and register for the event
- Register yourself, friends and family for the event
- Become a team supporter and make a donation to a team or participant
Please note that a donation to the walk is not a registration—all participants must pre-register online or register on-site.
Last year, Michael Cox explained why your support is important. It's even more important this year. (click image to view)
