Stride for Aggie Pride
With a focus on student philanthropy, UC Davis is hosting its first 5K Stride for Aggie Pride on Sunday, April 7, to generate money for student scholarships and emergency funding.
Organized by students, Stride for Aggie Pride will forward its proceeds to student scholarships offered through the Associated Students of UC Davis (ASUCD) and awards through the We Are Aggie Pride student organization, which provides emergency funding to students to cover food, rent and other essential costs.
Everyone is invited to participate: students, faculty, staff and members of the public. Registration is $15 for students and $30 for nonstudents. As of Tuesday, more than 1,500 people had signed up and more than $15,000 had been raised.
Registration continues online, or you can sign up the day of the stride, starting at 8 a.m. at the north end of the Quad. Fees: $15 for students (K-12 to college), $30 for nonstudents. Group stretches are scheduled for 9 a.m., and the Stride for Aggie Pride begins at 9:30. The 3.1-mile course begins on the West Quad and loops through campus, including the arboretum. More information.
All funds raised will count toward The Campaign for UC Davis, the university’s first comprehensive fundraising campaign that seeks to raise $1 billion from 100,000 donors by December 2014.
