Now in its 10th year, The HBCU Alumni Alliance Run/Walk is proud to be back for another spectacular event. We've heard you loud and clear and we want to continue to focus on what has made this a great event. As such, we have made two big changes to this year's race. First, we are excited to announce that the race will be moved back to the morning AND second, the race will only be a 5K! Please join us as we raise much needed scholarship dollars for students in Metro-Atlanta. Over the past ten years, our participants have helped raised over $750,000! And this year, with your help, we are looking to hit the $1,000,000 mark! Registration is just step 1, please also consider pledging your support. Together, we can do more to support our future generation.
Please note, this is a 100% volunteer fundraiser and 100% of the proceeds go towards Metro-Atlanta students attending or headed to an HBCU. Thank you for your support.
For sponsorship or vendor opportunities, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
