You Can Walk the Walk for Education with UNCF in Your Home Town

UNCF is championing education by holding 5K walks in 9 major cities across the US.  

Whether you are an avid runner or prefer to walk, please join UNCF in a celebration of education!  The 2018 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.
