Keymáh Leads Greeks for HBCU's Team for UNCF Walk L.A.


2012 UNCF Los Angeles
Walk for Education
Anniversary FUNDRAISER

Actress / Activist T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh serves again as Honorary Captain of the Greeks for HBCU's Team, one of dozens of teams walking in the 30th Anniversary UNCF Los Angeles Walk for Education, on Saturday, June 2, 2012. More than 2,500 walkers in the Greater Los Angeles area will participate with an additional 100 volunteers helping on that day.  The annual 5K UNCF Walk for Education helps raise critical funds to support UNCF’s 38 member Historically Black Colleges and Universities and 55,000 students. The event participants represent a variety of corporate teams, groups, organizations and individual walkers.  
Keymáh, a graduate of Florida A&M University, says "Membership in Black Greek letter organizations on college campuses is preparation for a lifetime of service. It is no wonder then, that we are eager to help today's students enjoy that uniquely wonderful experience that is matriculation at an HBCU." She encourages Greeks and Non-Greeks to participate in the walk, saying, "I hope to see many other teams again this year. If you attended an HBCU or wanted to, if your parents did, your child did or does, or if you just want to make sure the HBCUs are there for future generations to attend, please support UNCF, and this walk!"
