Bucks for TOPS 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk

March 31, 2019

Sign up to participate in a 5K run or 1 mile walk at Fred Beekman Park in support of Bucks for TOPS—an active student organization at Ohio State. Bucks for TOPS works hand-in-hand with the Nisonger Center at The Ohio State University to raise money for scholarships and program funding, which allow future and current students enrolled in the TOPS (Transition Option in Post-Secondary Settings) program to achieve higher education and careers that would otherwise be unattainable. The TOPS program at The Ohio State University Nisonger Center offers individuals with intellectual & developmental disabilities a unique opportunity to engage in OSU academic coursework and work experiences. This spring semester, Bucks for TOPS is hosting a 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk in support of this philanthropic goal! 

If you cannot participate in the run or walk, please consider donating!
