Complete your favorite 5K route during the month of September!


Join fellow Wolverines around the world throughout the month of September for the 2021 Hail! from Home Virtual 5K. Wolverines are coming together from across the globe to support LEAD Scholars by completing their favorite 5K courses. Everyone and anyone can participate in the Hail! From Home Virtual 5K, and we'll mail the swag straight to you!


Your participation impacts U-M students:
A portion of every registration goes towards the LEAD Scholars General Fund, which supports Black, Native American, and Latinx students accepted to U-M. The LEAD Scholars program provides students across all three campuses with life-changing scholarship and inclusive community support that aims to empower scholars throughout college and beyond. 

Your tax-deductible gift will help students that demonstrate leadership, excellence, achievement, and diversity achieve their dreams.
