Team Fundraising

The UWM Alumni Association presents two team awards each year. The Stan Stojkovic Team Fundraising Award honors the team who collectively raises the most money for UWM students in need, and the Largest Team Award, presented to the team with the most participants. Awardees receive both a trophy to showcase until the next year’s event and bragging rights, but the real winners are the UWM students who benefit from the generous support. 

Be sure to select your team (or start a new one) during registration.

Virtual Prowl - Do the 5K Your Way

Participate in the Panther Prowl from anywhere in the world! You will receive a race bib, foldable tote and tech decal in the mail. Do the 5K your way while supporting UWM student scholarships! Last year some creative Prowlers decided to do an obstacle course or bike ride instead of a traditional run. However, you choose to Prowl, snap a pic in your UWM gear and celebrate your accomplishment by sharing on social media using hashtag #2023Prowl by Sunday, Oct. 15. You can also upload your race time and get a custom finisher certificate.
