Chick-fil-A University Place and University City schools are partnering for another Race2Educate 5K and Fun Run in 2019!

With record-breaking numbers and lots of energy, the University City community had a blast at last year’s event. With a total of 754 registered participants, we raised thousands of dollars for college scholarships and over $10,000 in direct assistance to our University City schools. Check out our photos from last year!  Mark your calendars now and let’s Race2Educate.

Benefiting University City Schools

All money raised supports University City schools as well as college scholarships to deserving students!
