Get Your Running Shoes On and Come Support Our Scholars
It’s time for our 34th UTSA Alumni Diploma Dash 5K on February 24, 2018 and we need you! Sign up at www.utsadiplomadash.org. We are excited to have alumnae April Ancira ’03 as the emcee for the event. April is an avid runner and triathlon athlete in the San Antonio community and a dedicated supporter of UTSA.
Diploma Dash is a family friendly, stroller friendly and dog friendly event. Register your dog at the event or packet pickup to receive a bib and special dog swag!! Association members can log in to get a discount price of $25.
Don’t like the thought of getting up early to run, we have a category for you!! Participate as a Sleep-In Supporter 0.0. You’ll still get a shirt and sticker and know you helped build our scholarship fund without getting out of bed.
