2022 UNCF National Walk for Education – Orlando

Hello, Central Florida!

Make a difference while exercising —run, walk, bring your furry friends—all in honor of UNCF, our students, and schools! Join us in Orlando for the Central Florida 5K Run/Walk and help UNCF raise funds to support our HBCUs and students.

Celebrate with your family, friends, and coworkers. Let’s build better futures one step at a time.

The UNCF Walk for Education is a 5K RUN and a local initiative to raise the critical funds UNCF needs to fulfill our mission of support to our member HBCUs and to help our students to become active participants of society through a high-quality education.

Presented by UNCF Orlando
