Thank you for helping the 5k Riverside Run & Wellness Walk.
WHY IS THE 5K RIVERSIDE RUN AND WALK IMPORTANT TO JEFFERSON COLLEGE?
As a private not-for-profit institution, Jefferson College’s tuition is sometimes outside of the reach of students interested in a promising career in healthcare. The 5k Riverside Run and Wellness Walk is designed to not only increase the community awareness of Jefferson College and its impact, but to raise funds to support the College’s Extra Mile Fund. The brainchild of the College’s Student Affairs division, the Extra Mile Fund is a co-curricular fund designed to support a student’s development and success outside of the classroom. Students may apply for funds to participate in conferences, experiential learning activities, research, and other activities outside of the classroom designed to give them the most complete educational experience possible. Students applying for funding must be in good standing with the College, have a minimum 2.5 GPA, and have completed at least 12 hours in residence at Jefferson College. Students will also be required to provide at least 50 percent of the funding for their proposed activity. The Extra Mile Fund is a critical component to educating the most knowledgeable and experienced healthcare professional of the 21st century. Join us in this endeavor, get up and run for Jefferson!
