History on event:
Well a little history of on Run. Connie Claussen – 38 years (1986) ago had an idea, she needed to raise money for women’s athletics here at UNO!   So, she gathered some of her friends and community leaders and started the first UNO Women’s Walk! That first year, Connie raised over $12,000 for women’s athletics. As of today, we

We’ve raised over $4,600,000 from this event.
