Loyola Traditions

AIDS Walk and Run
The AIDS Run and Walk, put on by the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, is a great change to raise awareness about the AIDS crisis and raise money to support the cause. Options include a 10k and 5k run and a 5k walk. Check out our Aids Run and Walk page for more info.

Hunger Week
Hunger Week is a decades-long tradition at Loyola. Take part in this fall semester tradition of raising funds and awareness in the global fight against hunger. Even better, join the Hunger Week planning team to bring this tradition to life! (Volunteer applications are now available and due by February 9! Contact hungerweek@luc.edu to learn more.)
