Each year it is sponsored by Auxiliary Services and is now coordinated by VEGA, a women’s honor society.

All proceeds of the walk will go to United Way of Greater Oswego County and will ultimately benefit various programs within the community.

“United Way of Greater Oswego County applauds SUNY Oswego students and staff in their volunteer efforts to support the community. Their commitment to the walk-a-thon event has helped to raise awareness of local human needs and the programs that address them,” said Lois Luber, resource development director at United Way of Greater Oswego County.

The 5K walk will take place October 12.
