Running away from social justice issues isn’t something we should do as a society. Race Against Isms is running towards building awareness about ableism, racism, sexism, classism, and more that affect people on a global scale. This is a race we should want to win to grow as human beings.
The Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America-College Retirement Equities Fund (TIAA) and Community College of Denver (CCD) will be collaborating to host a 5k race on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2022, at 9 a.m. on CCD’s Auraria campus. Registration is free for all college staff and students. All participants will receive a moisture-wicking shirt along with their race packet.
In addition to running for a good cause, TIAA has created six $1,000 Race Against Isms scholarships for students that have displayed strength, leadership, and progress in the name of “isms” and/or social injustice in their community.
The following roads will be closed due to the race:
We hope to see students, staff, and members of the community embrace this opportunity to shine a light on the social injustice of all the “isms.”
