April 15th Run / Walk to Commemorate Life and Work of Consuelo I. Aguilar
On Saturday, April 15th, a Run /Walk will take place starting at 7:30 am for registration at the University of Arizona Mall. Funds raised will support the Consuelo I Aguilar Scholarship Fund, administered by the UA Department of Mexican American Studies (MAS). Registration will open up at 7:30 am and there will be a series of commencing ceremonies, cancer and health awareness talks, award to the second Consuelo Aguilar Scholarship recipient and more. The run will initiate at 9:00am sharp.
Consuelo Aguilar passed away in February 2009 at the age of 26 after a valiant fight against an extremely aggressive form of cancer. A UA graduate, she was committed to improving conditions in the Mexican American community, and helping high school students through her work in the Tucson Unified School District’s Ethnic Studies Department.
The Consuelo I. Aguilar Scholarship Fund supports male and female high school seniors who plan to attend the University of Arizona and declare MAS as a major, current undergraduate MAS majors and Graduate Students accepted to the MAS program. Those students must have a minimum 3.25 GPA and proof of community involvement with underrepresented minorities. Economic need is not a consideration.
To make the run/walk successful, schools, clubs, organizations, teams, sororities and fraternities, as well as individuals are invited to join us in running/walking and raising cancer awareness in our communities. All participants should plan on a $35 registration fee on site (which includes a T-shirt). Donors do not need be present to contribute. Any wishing to pre-register may do so at a registration fee of $30 no later than Wednesday April 12th. Otherwise you must register the day of the event itself.
