Lace Up for the UNCF Alabama Virtual Walk for Education
The United Negro College Fund (UNCF) is one of the best organizations benefiting minority education. The UNCF was founded in 1944, and they have raised more than $4.8 billion that assists economically disadvantaged scholars to complete their post-secondary education.
Their mantra is “A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste, but a Wonderful Thing to Invest In.” To help continue their mission, you too can help kids go to college, and you don’t even have to leave the house. They are hosting a Virtual Walk for Education on Saturday, September 18, 2021. Click here to help raise funds the UNCF is hosting.
The UNCF “supports students’ education and development through scholarships and other programs, strengthening its 37 member colleges and universities. UNCF advocates for the importance of minority education and college readiness.”
Even though the pandemic is still happening, you can still support the UNCF, get exercise, and raise money for a great cause. This will still allow you to keep the important UNCF work. “While the country is practicing social distancing, the event will engage participants in activities to walk, run, cycle and dance safely—all the while having fun and still raising money for UNCF.”
