Race2EducateWe can’t help but love the upcoming Race2Educate 5K on April 6 because it raises thousands of dollars each year for scholarships and support of University City public schools!

The event’s organizers need many sponsors, runners and volunteers to make this the best year yet. Won’t you help?

The sixth annual Race2Educate 5K will provide scholarships and critical resources to help students at University City area schools. Funds are used for strategic initiatives that encourage more favorable conditions for students to learn and be successful.

100% of sponsorship money goes to scholarships for schools partnered with University City Connect. Additional funds raised by race registration goes toward supplying critical resources for students in our community.


Here’s how you can help:

  • Take part in the 5K and fun run. Registration proceeds go to support the schools. Register here
  • Volunteer your time to help on race day. Sign up here
  • Become a sponsor. To learn more about the needs and the benefits to your company, contact Race Director Ashley Lisk at cfauniversityplace@gmail.com or 704-674-8418.
