Race2Educate is a 5k established by University City Connect (UCC) to grant students scholarships to provide hope for their future. Over the past six years, thanks to our wonderful sponsors, UCC has been able to give 26 students, $80,000 worth of scholarships! Over that the six year period the money from runner participation, another $41,000, has been granted to the local University City schools to fund strategic initiatives that encourage more favorable conditions for education.
