Time to Walk the Walk for Education with UNCF in Your Home Town

UNCF is championing education by holding 5K walks in eight major cities across the US.

Whether you are an avid runner or prefer to walk, bike or skate, please join UNCF in a celebration of education!  The 2019 UNCF Walk for Education event series includes 9 cities nationwide during the summer months and into the fall. UNCF and its supporters will walk and run to raise funds vital to the education needs of students throughout our country.

Each event offers exciting activities designed to ensure that all participants have a good time while doing good for students in their areas. Meet with corporate sponsors, have a picnic, be a volunteer, support a team, make a donation, or simply cheer on the walk participants.

See the list below to see when the walk closest to you is scheduled, start times, registration information, and volunteer and sponsor opportunities.

#LaceUp4UNCF and get walking, running or biking!
