      Homecoming: Virtual Blue Hens 5k

      Proudly wear your blue and gold and run or walk the 4th Annual University of Delaware Blue Hens Homecoming 5k virtually anytime and anywhere between October 19th 12AM EST through October 25 11:59PM EST to support the Blue Hen Strong and the Employee Emergency Relief Funds at the University of Delaware. All students, employees, alumni, family members, and community members are invited to participate.

      Faced with an unimaginable global crisis, many UD students have been, and will continue to be, impacted by unforeseen hardships, such as new financial burdens, struggles related to career readiness and stress surrounding the new landscape of online learning. Gifts to the Blue Hen Strong Fund will directly and immediately address the urgent needs of our UD students to ensure their success at UD and beyond – providing success grants to cover tuition, access to technology and advancements to online learning tools, career readiness support and so much more.

      The Employee Emergency Relief Fund supports eligible faculty and staff members who are experiencing temporary hardship as a result of an unanticipated crisis including, but not limited to, fire, theft, natural disaster, sudden death or illness in the immediate family, pandemic, etc. The fund, which is managed by the Office of Human Resources, will be administered through grants of up to $1,000 (via an application process) and is designed to address temporary financial hardship that faculty and staff may be experiencing as it relates to the aforementioned circumstances.

      At UD, when we face challenges, we face them together. We are BLUE HEN STRONG. Register here to participate in this year’s virtual 5k race and support your fellow blue hens.
