ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (including UCSD Medical Center)
ALL STUDENTS AT UCSD
The UC San Diego community will again join forces to benefit our students through the Chancellor's Challenge 5K Run/Walk for Scholars. I am tremendously proud to lead the challenge again this year and I personally invite you to this activity on Friday, October 20, 2006, for our 11th annual Chancellor's Challenge.
The Chancellor's Challenge has raised more than $1.5 million in scholarship funds to help highly motivated undergraduates attend UCSD. Whether you run or walk the 5K, I'll be joining you as I walk the course and I will donate $5,000 if the total number of registrants exceeds last year's total of 1,527.
The Chancellor's Challenge 5K Run/Walk for Scholars will start at 12:15 p.m. from the North Campus Field, adjacent to RIMAC, and continue along a course that weaves through campus. If you need alternative accessibility arrangements or accommodations, please contact Dave Koch at (858) 822-5260.
Check-in begins at 10:30 a.m. and there will be warm-up exercises at 11:45 a.m. led by Recreation's own Alexia Cervantes. 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.
Don't miss the fun and excitement of this great event. We need volunteers to make it the success it has always been. To volunteer, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your participation is a great example of your ongoing commitment to UCSD and our students. In appreciation of your support and as part of the Faculty-Staff Campaign in the $1 billion Campaign for UCSD: Imagine What's Next, you will receive a commemorative "Help Take Us over the Top" Faculty-Staff pin.
I look forward to seeing everyone on October 20.
