Unity in Diversity 5k Run, Walk & Roll

TBD Pending COVID-19 Progress Gainesville, FL 32601 US Directions
Notice of 5k Cancellation (Possible Postponement)

New Date: TBD Pending COVID-19 Progress

As I am certain that you have been made aware of within the past week, life is taking a quick pause with the global pandemic of COVID-19. This pause unfortunately includes the cancellation of all of the UF College of Medicine's Celebration of Diversity Week Events inclusive of our inaugural Unity in Diversity 5K Run, Walk & Roll on 04.04.2020. 

Although this is extremely disappointing, it is for the health and welfare of us all, because without "us" there would be no diversity or opportunity for inclusivity. We are extremely grateful for all those who have supported us thus far and are even more determined and excited to continue this movement after this pandemic. 

Although our unification event has been cancelled, the need for acceptance and diversity in all life aspects must not be stopped. Especially in a time like this, it is important to respect others' differences around us and appreciate the overwhelming sense of community that can strength us through this challenging time. 

Please follow us on Instagram @unityindiversityatflorida and Facebook at: Unity in Diversity at Florida for future communication about our Unity in Diversity 5K Run, Walk & Roll 2021. We have taken a pause for now... but we will all come back next year bigger, stronger and better… together.:) Thank you and I look forward for an even bigger wave next year!  Stay Healthy & Safe, 

Katerina Garcia, President of Unity in Diversity

The Unity in Diversity Student Organization in partnership with the UF College of Medicine and the UF Chief Diversity Officer presents to you the inaugural “Unity in Diversity 5K Run, Walk & Roll Race.” Our collaboration is centered on diversity and inclusion, unification of people from all different walks of life from Gainesville and the Gator Nation in a healthy, active community-wide event while raising funds for the College of Medicine's Willie J. Sanders Scholarship fund. The goal of the Unity in Diversity 5k Run, Walk & Roll is to unite students of all ages, adults, families, people of all cultures, faiths, ethnicities, genders, disabilities, and beliefs as we recognize that everyone is unique in their own way; however, finding a common ground and shedding light on what holds us all together.  The event will take place on Saturday, April 4, 2020 @ 7:30am. Pre-race registration, race start/finish and post-race celebration will take place at the Academic Research Building property and adjacent grounds. The race is wheelchair and stroller friendly.
