Race for a Reason

Information on the next Race for a Reason is forthcoming.

This annual race, which last took place on Saturday April 25, 2020, is comprised of six different events including a Remote Race where #OHIOFamily alumni are encouraged to take part in the event from any location across the United States.

We would like to also take this opportunity to thank all of our 2019 race participants, volunteers, and sponsors for creating a successful event raising over $55,000 for 58 different "reasons," which include charities, student organizations, and community initiatives.

If you'd like more information on the race, on becoming a sponsor, or on how to get involved, please contact our Race Director, Maggie Shandrick at ms745014@ohio.edu or 765-430-1240.
