The Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs is hosting the Trek the Trail 5k run/walk to benefit student scholarships. This event fosters leadership opportunities for students and is a zero-waste event focusing on sustainable, leave-no-trace ethics. It is the first to be hosted on the NEW 5k trail at UCCS.
The event is being co-hosted by our outstanding college student organizations:
- Exercise is Medicine
- Beth-El Student Nurses Association
- Nutrition Club
In the last six years, Trek the Trail has raised over $9,000 in scholarship funds for students.
The Trek the Trail 5k features beautiful UCCS campus trails and is the official UCCS Family Weekend 5k.
