5k Run and Walk
Supporting Student Textbook Scholarships


128 runners and walkers came together Saturday, May 7th at Lower McCorkle Park in Gahanna for the Cougar Challenge. The Challenge, a 5k run and walk is sponsored by the Staff Advisory Council of Columbus State, supports book scholarships for Columbus State Community College students.

The cost of books is a significant and often overlooked cost of attending college. While every effort is made to provide students affordable options, sometimes there is no way around the costs of up to date, high quality textbooks. Your participation will help us endow book scholarships so all students can “cross the finish line” of their education.
