Save the Date! Get Excited! Form a team! Join a team! Have fun!
Join us at noon on Wednesday, April 22, 2015!
Our annual Walk to Aspire raises money for student scholarships, so future students will have the Edge for Success. Students, faculty and staff organize themselves into fundraising teams. The fundraising "fury" culminates with the Walk to Aspire, a two-mile walk around the college's track.
This year it will be more than just a walk! Susan Garcia of the Health, Physical Education and Dance Department will be running an exciting activity series just for Walk to Aspire. We might Zumba or maybe do a little Aerobics. Join us in the fun! Participate in our on campus Scavenger Hunt that day. See pictures of you and your team, walking or exercising on the Queensborough Community College Alumni Association Facebook Page.
In addition to asking their friends, families, and employers for sponsorship, teams traditionally get creative – holding fundraising events such as raffles, bake, and book sales.
Proceeds go to the "Aspire Scholarship Fund." College departments that organize a team can direct their dollars to an existing departmental scholarship fund.
The 2014-2015 goal is $25,000, with at least 20 teams participating.
Queensborough Community College will be celebrating its Second Annual Harry Lum Day by giving away complimentary desserts to students participating in Walk to Aspire!
