More than 300 participants, including students, alumni, faculty and staff members and friends of the campus, gathered for the second annual UC Merced Journ
Ke-Myrion Anderson had never set foot on college campus before he spent a week at UC Merced in July.
Junior Sammantha Fajardo wasn’t satisfied with merely representing UC Merced on the cross country course, so she stepped up to represent the university’s student-athletes at the national level.
The UC Merced Alumni Association and Athletics and Recreation will host the inaugural UC Merced Journey 5K Fund Run on Sept. 5 to celebrate the campus’s 10th anniversary.
Current students, staff and faculty members, alumni and community members are invited to participate. All proceeds from the run will support student scholarships. The goal is to raise $2,500, which will be matched 3-to-1.
