About 5K

The Stride for Aggie Pride 5K is a philanthropic 5K run/walk organized by a group of enthusiastic UC Davis students and staff dedicated to bettering student life. In its inaugural year this fun run had over 1700 participants and raised nearly $17,500

This year the Stride for Aggie Pride 5K will be held May 18th, 2014. The philanthropic fun run will be held at UC Davis and will allow for the participants to take a scenic route through the notable arboretum and other campus features along the way.

The event is open to participants of all ages.

This event aims to promote a healthy lifestyle, with a specific focus on student holistic health to promote being mentally and physically fit. Various local businesses from the Davis community and on campus departments as well as the region have united to show support for the cause and will be featured throughout the event at booths and hands-on activities.

All proceeds from the 5K Aggie Stride for Pride benefit the ASUCD Endowment Fund and We Are Aggie Pride.

The ASUCD Endowment Fund was created in 1999 and funds student scholarships such as the ASUCD Scholarship. This endowment is unique and special because the ASUCD Scholarships are given out in prizes of $500 and $1,000 every fall and spring quarter by a committee of undergraduate student peers.

We Are Aggie Pride, with a motto of students helping students, is a student run organization which provides emergency funding to students to cover  food, rent and other essential costs. The program aims at serving as a temporary relief fund to those who need financial support.
