The official “Challenge” is on once again.  The 12th Annual Chancellor’s Challenge 5K Run/Walk for Scholars—a longtime UC San Diego tradition to raise funds for undergraduate scholarships—is now slated for Friday, November 30, after being postponed due to the recent wildfires.

Chancellor Marye Anne Fox will lead the challenge, which has raised more than $1.7 million for undergraduate scholarships since the event was founded in 1996.  New this year is the “Chancellor’s Champion” contest, in which students, faculty, staff and alumni representatives will race against each other in a friendly competition.  The event will also feature special recognition and thanks to UC San Diego faculty and staff who have so generously given to undergraduate student scholarships.

In support of UCSD students, Fox will add $5,000 for every $50,000 raised as part of the Chancellor’s Challenge 5K, and will match new and increased gifts with discretionary funds up to $40,000.  In addition, for the first 500 students registered, Fox will personally match their $10 registration fee to double the contribution to scholarships.

The Chancellor’s Challenge 5K Run/Walk for Scholars will begin on November 30 at 12:15 p.m. from the North Campus Field, adjacent to RIMAC, and continue on a course that weaves through the UCSD campus.  Participants may run or walk the 5K course.  For those not already signed up, please visit www.ucsd.edu/5k for registration and more information.
