Help Build Scholarships

Steadily increasing costs make it harder and harder to afford college. Tuition, books, living expenses and transportation all add up to a considerable burden for many students and their families. For some graduates, paying off student loans occupies decades.

You Can Help.

Your participation in this race helps build our scholarship fund so that we can give deserving minds an education without making them mortgage their futures. Please consider an additional donation of $5, $10, $25 or more.

All proceeds benefit the UC Blue Ash College Scholarship Fund. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need and academic merit without regard to student age, race, gender, disability or life situation.
