UC Blue Ash Dash 5K Run/Walk for Scholarships

Don’t miss the fourth annual UC Blue Ash Dash 5K Run/Walk for Scholarships taking place on Saturday, October 8 at 8:30 a.m. Bring your friends, family, and even your dog. Race just for fun, or compete for fastest walker or runner in your age group – there’s even an award for best costume! You may register as an individual, with a group, or with your colleagues as part of the Corporate Team Challenge! This is an event you won’t want to miss.

During the third annual 5K Run/Walk for Scholarships last October, over 730 alumni and their families, staff and faculty members, students, and friends of the college joined us for a day of sunshine to either walk, run, or even sleep-in to raise $53,000 for student scholarships.

Following the race, participants enjoyed music and plenty of food and refreshments while both competitive and spirited awards were announced.

Race Day is Saturday October 8, 2016
Starts at 8:30 a.m.

Help a student graduate!

Steadily increasing costs make it harder and harder to afford college. Tuition, books, living expenses, transportation- all add up to a considerable burden for many students and their families. For some graduates, paying off student loans occupies decades.

You Can Help.

Your participation in this race helps build our scholarship fund so that we can give deserving minds an education without making them mortgage their futures. Please consider an additional donation of $5, $10, $25 or more.

All proceeds benefit the UC Blue Ash College Scholarship Fund. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need and academic merit without regard to student age, race, gender, disability or life situation.

Fun & Fitness

  • Registered participants will receive a t-shirt and goody bag(while supplies last)
