Honda R&D Supports UNCF Walk
ONYX, Honda R&D America’s newly formed African-American Business Resource Group (BRG), participated in the 35th Annual UNCF Walk for Education in downtown Columbus at Wolfe Park.
Team ONYX had 5 runners/walkers and also hosted a booth for the community to “meet the engineers” and share their dreams for education, their community and the future of transportation. Honda R&D volunteers also passed out water at the finish line from the back of a Honda Ridgeline.
The Walk for Education in Columbus, held Sept. 29, attracted nearly 800 participants. The event engages the Columbus community in raising money for UNCF to support not only its 37 historically black colleges and universities members, but the more than 1,200 Columbus-area students attending college with the help of a UNCF scholarship.
Similar events are held annual across the country to support UNCF.
