College of Medicine Virtual 5K for Scholarships!

For Scholarships

Get ready to kick start your 2024 resolutions and make a difference! We're calling on all alumni, students and friends to participate in our 5K extravaganza, and guess what? You get to choose how you conquer the 3.1-mile challenge – run, walk, roll, or self-propel your way to victory!

Lace-up those shoes, embrace the challenge, and let's make the beginning of 2024 to remember. Are you in? Register now!


Your registration fees go beyond just securing your spot at the event; they serve as your ticket to make a real impact. Choose to allocate your fees to champion a cause close to your heart – whether it’s the Dean’s Preeminence Scholarship Fund, the Wayne D. Bottom PA Scholarship Fund, or the Friends of the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences Fund. Demonstrate your commitment to advancing education through scholarships!

Additional Opportunities for Your Generosity

Annually, we warmly welcome incoming Gator Docs and PAs, marking the beginning of their journey with a cherished gift from our valued alumni: the Gator engraved stethoscope! We invite you to join us in upholding this meaningful tradition of stethoscope giving. Kindly consider making a special contribution to the Medical Alumni Stethoscope Fund or the School of Physician Assistant Studies Stethoscope Fund. The cost for one engraved stethoscope is $175. Your generosity will ensure that future students can experience the same meaningful gesture from you. Thank you for your continued support!


Let’s transform this 5K into a jubilant celebration of alumni spirit, community, and scholarship support! Get ready to lace up those shoes and proudly display your Gator spirit. Check out these inspiring snapshots from past years. Will we see you there? Join the festivities!
