About the MCC 5K Walk/Run for Scholarships

Homecoming_5K_2017-2491_Large V4.jpg

In-person Date and Location:  Saturday, October 1, 2022, in-person at MCC's Brighton Campus, 1000 East Henrietta Road, Rochester, NY 14623. We will adhere to all current MCC guidelines and/or policies in regard to COVID-19.

Virtual:  Virtual participants may walk, run, hike, bike or swim off campus on Saturday October 1.  Virtual participants will not receive a bib and will not be timed.  Virtual participants are not eligible to receive awards or medals.  Current MCC students registered for the 5K by September 27 who participate virually will be entered into the scholarship drawing.

Purpose: MCC alumni, students, faculty/staff, friends and members of the Rochester-area community will connect to raise scholarship support for MCC students and celebrate Homecoming.  The benefit of a combined in-person and virtual race means you can show your support in the way that is most comfortable for you. You can walk or run at your convenience and invite others to join you who typically do not participate in a 5K.    

Support a Great Cause:  This event, hosted by the MCC Foundation, continues to grow year after year. Since 2009 we have raised a total of $220,000 and welcomed 5,778 5K participants and donors!  

Packet Pick Up:  Thursday, September 29, from 12-2 pm, Room 3-121, MCC's Brighton Campus, 1000 East Henrietta Road.  Virtual participants will receive a commemorative T-shirt only.
