Milwaukee Youth Participate in 30th Annual UNCF Walk

New Look Milwaukee youth recently participated in UNCF’s annual walk and run. Milwaukee’s annual UNCF Walk/Run for Education has become an anticipated family-oriented 5K (3.1 mile) walk and certified run for corporate employees, donors, volunteers and friends. This fundraising event was formed to raise funds for UNCF students in the form of scholarships and services. UNCF students attend over 900 colleges and universities. UNCF also supports 38 historically black colleges and universities.

Corporate teams, fraternities, sororities, groups, churches, organizations and individuals who participate realize that “a mind is a terrible thing to waste”® and also understand the importance of “giving back”. Many participants are proud alumni of historically black colleges and universities; they look forward each year to this measurably tangible activity that supports the institutions which have given many their start in life.

“The UNCF walk run was a great experience for me. It was my first time being involved in an event like this and as a participant I was able to be a part of a cause that will benefit others who are just like me.” -Quentin, Milwaukee Youth
