On November 2, 2018, the University of Memphis Young Alumni Chapter will host the 10th Anniversary 5K race. The race creates alumni interaction, engages current students and raises money for the Young Alumni Legacy Scholarship. The TRUE BLUE 5K is an evening race on the main campus of the University of Memphis. The race is hosted on campus to bring alumni back to see the constant changes and updates happening around campus. It is also a great way to cultivate alumni and student interaction.
