2018 Consuelo Aguilar Walk/Run

When: April 07, 2018 7:30am

Consuelo Aguilar passed away in February 2009 at the age of 26 after a valiant fight against an extremely aggressive form of cancer. A UA graduate, she was committed to improving conditions in the Mexican American community, and helping high school students through her work in the Tucson Unified School District's Ethnic Studies Department.

The Consuelo I. Aguilar Scholarship Fund supports male and female high school seniors who plan to attend the University of Arizona and declare Mexican American Studies (MAS) as a major, or are current undergraduate MAS majors and graduate students accepted to the MAS program. Those students must have a minimum 3.25 GPA and proof of community involvement with underrepresented minorities. Economic need is not a consideration.

To make the run/walk successful, schools, clubs, organizations, teams, sororities, fraternities and individuals are invited to join in running/walking and raising cancer awareness in our communities.

All participants should plan on a $35 registration fee on site (which includes a T-shirt). Donors do not need be present to contribute. Anyone wishing to pre-register may do so at a registration fee of $30 no later than Wednesday, April 4. Otherwise, you must register the day of the event itself.


For a credit card pre-registration, please visit the website. Once you have registered, please feel free to fill out a T-shirt shirt form in order to make sure a t-shirt is saved with the right size. Otherwise we can provide you with the T-shirts on site but size availability will not be guaranteed.

For checks, please be aware that you will have to print a pre-registration form and that checks can only be mailed or hand delivered to the department.  

Please print the registration form and mail, fax or deliver it to:
