Polar Bear Up and join us for the third annual Polar Bear Virtual 5K in support of ONU’s Dimension Award Scholar Program! Only together, can we Polar Bears go further in developing student leaders who come from underrepresented backgrounds. This year, there are two ways to participate:

  1. Meet us on campus, Saturday, July 16, 2022. Go time is 8:30 a.m. for both competitive and non-competitive participants. ONU’s Cross Country team is joining us to welcome participants, run the race and cheer us Polar Bears to the finish line!


  2. Join us virtually! Wherever you are, skip, walk or run 5K at some point over the weekend of July 15-17, 2022. Hop on the 2022 Virtual Polar Bear 5K Facebook event, post your best victory pose and tag @onualumni. 

Registration is $25 and includes a 2022 Polar Bear 5K t-shirt.

NOTE: Virtual participants must register by Friday, July 1, 2022 in order to receive a t-shirt by the event weekend. Registrations for the virtual 5K will be received up until Friday, July 8, but after July 1, our alumni office cannot guarantee that t-shirts will arrive in time for the 5K weekend itself. On-campus participants will receive their t-shirts the day of the event and can register up until Friday, July 8, 2022.   

Increase the impact of this fun-run by making a $25 gift in support of the Dimension Award Scholars Program which offers financial assistance, social programming and academic support to current students who are underrepresented at ONU.
