Larrick Student Center
Each spring, the VCU Staff Senate sponsors an annual walk-a-thon to raise funds for the Virginia's Caring University Scholarship, an undergraduate award for juniors and seniors in financial need with a grade point average of 2.7 or better. Since beginning the program in 2005, the scholarship has helped approximately 80 undergraduate students continue their education and graduate from VCU by raising more than $70,000 cumulatively from the VCU and VCU Health System communities.
This year’s walk-a-thon will take place Wednesday, April 17, 2013. All participants should meet by 11:15 a.m. on the MCV Campus at the Larrick Student Center, located at 900 Turpin Street. Dr. Eric West, Associate Professor with VCU Recreational Sports, and some of his associates will lead us in a fun-filled warm up and short work-out on the Bear Hall lawn. At 12:00 p.m., we’ll have a short program featuring Dr. David Hanson, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Special Guest Marquita Aguilar and Staff Senate President Katherine Poarch. Participants will then convene in the Court End Ballroom for some lunch and giveaways!
All administration, faculty, staff, students, alumni, retired faculty and community supporters are invited to participate.
