The OUCKC is excited to announce the first ever Virtual OKU – 5K!
In an effort to mitigate some of the losses to club funds and scholarships due to COVID-19, as well as do something fun for everyone to participate in we will be hosting the first ever “Virtual OKU-5K”!
The best part – ALL proceeds from the race will go to the Club or Society of the registrants choice! Basically, the more of OUr OUCKC Members sign up and designate OUCKC, the more money OUr Club will receive. Please take to social media, call/text/email friends and supporters of OUCKC to get them to participate. There will also be a prize for the club with the most registrants!
Also, for each group who has 5 registrants sign up before July 3 will have their club/society listed on the official OKU-5K t-shirt (pictured below).

Participation – $20 per person
