Get Excited! Form a team! Join a team! Have fun!

Join Queensborough Community College and the Walk to Aspire on May 7, 2014!


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.

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 2013-2014 goal is $25,000, with at least 20 teams participating.

Queensborough Community College will be celebrating its First Annual Harry Lum Day by giving away complimentary desserts to students participating in Walk to Aspire!
