ALL STUDENTS AT UC SAN DIEGO
I am pleased to announce that the 12th annual Chancellor's Challenge 5K Run/Walk for Scholars-which was postponed due to the recent wildfires-has been rescheduled to take place on Friday, November 30, 2007.
The Chancellor's Challenge 5K will begin at 12:15 p.m. The race will start from the North Campus Field, adjacent to RIMAC, and continue on a course that weaves through campus. Participants may run or walk the 5K course.
In the spirit of broad campus involvement, I am approving two hours of administrative leave with pay on Friday, November 30, the day of the event. Supervisors may allow two hours of release time for staff to participate, as long as the absence does not infringe upon the performance of required job duties or patient care.
If you have not already done so, you may register, access payroll deduction forms to support scholarships, and find out more information about the event by visiting the Chancellor's Challenge 5K website at http://www.ucsd.edu/5k.
I appreciate your accommodation of the new date for this year's Chancellor's Challenge 5K Run/Walk for Scholars. I look forward to seeing you Friday, November 30, for this enjoyable event that greatly benefits our students.
