UR Chemistry students and faculty participated in the 5th Annual Excellus BlueCross BlueShield ​Teacher's Challenge 5K.  The event took place on Sunday, June 10th, 2018, and was hosted by ROC City Values.  All proceeds go to helping RCSD teachers purchase school supplies for their classrooms.  In just four years, this event has raised just over $60,000 for teachers in the Rochester City School District.  These funds went towards donating gift cards to teachers in the Rochester City School District that ranged from $100-$1,200.

Thank you to everyone for getting out there and supporting the RCSD teachers!
