Black and gold forever
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the University of Waterloo is taking steps to limit the spread and risks of the disease in our community. With caution and concern for our alumni, we have made the difficult decision to move Alumni Weekend and Alumni Black and Gold Day events online. While we can’t reconnect in the way we planned, we hope you will join us for the virtual events on September 25 and 26, 2020.
Run anytime September 19 to 12 p.m. (EDT) September 26
Join in the virtual alumni Fun Run by going for a run between September 19 and 26, and as always costumes are encouraged! Register for $10 and have a medal mailed to you; each additional medal is $5 extra.
