On Campus | Alumni
Ghosts, Ghouls and Goblins are taking over the University of Central Florida Friday, October 25, 2013, 7pm-9:30pm, in an effort to stop homelessness in Central Florida. The unique route around the UCF campus will include many spooky surprises for runners and walkers including an occasional Zombie sighting. Pre-race activities including fun and games begin at 5:30pm on the Recreation and Wellness Center’s Green (next to the leisure pool) and the race will begin at 7:00pm.
The United Way Spooky Knight 5k Run/Walk is the perfect way for the UCF community and Knights to give back during Homecoming weekend. Students, faculty, and staff will be decked out in their favorite Halloween costumes to take part in a 5k walk/run around campus to raise money for the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.
The Coalition for the Homeless is the largest provider of homeless services in Central Florida. Since 1987, the Coalition has helped more than 750 people daily with shelters and support in an effort to return families and individuals to self-sufficiency. The Coalition also helps more than 250 children each day and provided more than 300,000 meals to people in need last year.
October is LiveUnited month at UCF. Events like the Spooky Knight 5k Run/Walk are an example of the fundraising and team-building initiatives available to the campus community during this special time of giving on campus.
