STEP, CYCLE, SWING for Student Scholarships
Registration now open!
Month-long fundraiser will take place August 1-31, 2020.
Step Up for Students, a one-day fundraising event, will begin at 9:00 am
Saturday, August 29 and end at 9:00 am Sunday, August 30.
With no IPA Fun-Run, no RAGBRAI, and no Eggleston-Granberg Golf Classic in 2020, IPA has created a new fundraiser to support student pharmacists at Drake University and the University of Iowa. Although in-person gatherings are impractical, we can still get active together as an association!
With your donation of $50 to the IPA Foundation, you will receive a one-of-a-kind (and super soft) T-shirt for this year’s Step, Cycle, Swing for Student Scholarships event. Wearing your T-shirt, we encourage you to post a picture or video of yourself running, biking, golfing, kayaking or performing any physical activity you enjoy using the hashtag #IPAforStudentScholarships. All participants who post a photo or video of themselves in the T-shirt using the hashtag during the month of August will be entered in a drawing to win a prize. We can’t wait to see how many miles, cities, states and activities this virtual fundraiser will cover!
Those who register before Friday, July 17 will receive their T-shirt by August 1 in their desired size. T-shirts may be delayed with fewer sizing options for registrations received after July 17.
