Upcoming Events

A Week of Caring

The UBC Community United Way Campaign kicks off with a week filled with events! All event details are listed separately on this website.

The Great Pancake Race VIII

The Great Pancake Race is a community-building, awareness-raising, kick-off event for UBC’s United Way campaign. You are required to bring a great sense of humor, spirit and energy. Employees get together over your lunch for a relay-race involving frying pans and flipping pancakes. Prizes to be won, including best costumes!

Turkey 2K Trot

Join Applied Science’s kickoff to UBC’s annual United Way campaign on October 12! Run or walk from Agronomy Road (Main Mall crosswalk) to Flag Pole Plaza and back. Open to everyone! Dean Parlange will match the United Way donation of anyone who completes the race before he does. $2 or more suggested donation to enter. Wear Red to support the United Way campaign and get behind our Dean—or in front of him if you can!

Arts Food Truck Festival

Please join us in celebrating a 40 year partnership with United Way at the Arts Food Truck Festival. This signature event will be taking place during the UBC UW kick-off week - A Week of Caring. UBC Arts and Culture will have a line up of entertainment and $1 will be donated to our UBC United Campaign from all meals purchased at the UBC Food Trucks and Loafe.
