Panther Prowl raises more than $25,000 for student scholarships

More than 1,000 people flooded the streets of Milwaukee’s east side for a good cause — raising money for scholarships benefitting UW-Milwaukee students.

The 13th annual Panther Prowl, a 5k run/walk, on Saturday Oct. 7 hosted by the UW-Milwaukee Alumni Association raised more than $25,000 for student scholarships. The 5k included nearly 1,200 participants, while another 800 helped raise money, contributed money or volunteered at the event.

Prior to the Panther Prowl, young racers participated in the Toddler Dash and the Kids’ Dash. Panther athletes lined the race course to cheer the kids on.

Post-race celebrations included live music, food trucks and awards. The School of Information Studies’ team, SOIS Infomaniacs, won the largest team award with 116 members.
