In the spirit of broad campus involvement in the Chancellor's Challenge 5-K Run/Walk for Scholars, I am approving two hours of administrative leave with pay on Friday, October 22nd, the day of the event. Supervisors may allow two hours of release time for staff to participate when the absence does not infringe upon the performance of required job duties.
Now in its ninth year, the Chancellor's Challenge has had a direct impact on students' lives by raising more than $1 million for more than 500 scholarships. I'll be walking and UC President Robert Dynes will be back on campus to run the 5K course. We will both donate $25 for every person who finishes the race ahead of President Dynes.
The Chancellor's Challenge 5K Run/Walk will start at 12:15 p.m. from the North Campus Field, adjacent to RIMAC, and continue along a course that weaves through campus. Please contact Dave Koch at (858) 822-5260 to discuss requests for alternative accessibility arrangements or accommodations.
Check-in begins at 10:30 a.m. For entry forms, payroll deduction forms to support scholarships, and more information about this one-of-a-kind event, please visit the Chancellor's Challenge Web page at http://www.ucsd.edu/5k where you may also register and pay online.
Participants who have already registered can pick up their bib number and T-shirt at RIMAC on Thursday, October 21st, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. You may also call (858) 534-0263 for further information.
I look forward to seeing everyone on October 22nd.
