Event: YSJ take on the York 10k
Date: Sunday 6th August 2023
Location: York Racecourse, Knavesmire Road, York, YO23 1EX
Join the YSJ team as staff, students and alumni take on the York 10k! Our discounted ticket price covers your entry to the event and a YSJ team t-shirt, but our team is running for more than just fun (if running can ever be called that)! We are raising money for our alumni-funded scholarships which help underrepresented individuals access the education they deserve. Each runner is asked to raise a minimum of £100, the entirety of which will go straight to the fund. This is an amazing opportunity to see York in a new way and support your YSJ community.
There are only 15 tickets available, but watch this space as we will be releasing more at a later date!
More about the alumni-funded scholarships:
In the current academic year, we are supporting 6 undergraduate and postgraduate students and will continue to support them throughout their degree. These individuals come from backgrounds underrepresented in Higher Education, such as mature students, carers and those whose family circumstances have drastically changed. The need for scholarships is extremely high, meaning 75% of applicants missed out on a scholarship last year due to lack of funds. We want to support more students and we can do so with your help. If you are not able to join us for the run, you can still support our team by donating to our JustGiving campaign (https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/YSJYORK10K2023). Here, you will also find the team’s training updates and the total raised so far.
Please be aware that when you sign up your details will be saved. This is in order for the Alumni and Fundraising Team to give you access to the official event tickets and keep you up to date with any further event details. If you have any questions please contact the Alumni office. Telephone: 01904 876741 Email: [email protected]
