5k Run and Walk
Supporting Student Textbook Scholarships

Saturday April 18th, 2015 @ 9am
Creekside Plaza, Gahanna 

Columbus State Community College invites your participation in our 4th annual Cougar Challenge 5K. Join students, employees and partners of Columbus State to run for student success. Great looking shirts to all participants. Runners and Walkers welcome!

Our Purpose
This event, sponsored by the Staff Advisory Council of Columbus State, supports book scholarships for Columbus State Community College students. The cost of books is a significant and often overlooked cost of attending college. While every effort is made to provide students affordable options, sometimes there is no way around the costs of up to date, high quality textbooks. Your participation will help us endow book scholarships so all students can “cross the finish line” of their education.
