The College of Human Sciences will host an obstacle course event for scholarship funds.

WHAT: The Texas Tech University College of Human Sciences is hosting an obstacle course event called Hand Up for Harvey to fund a scholarship for students impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

WHEN: 1-4 p.m. Sunday (Nov. 5)

WHERE: Urbanovsky Park, Texas Tech

EVENT: Hand Up for Harvey is a way to fundraise for the Texas Tech Hurricane Harvey Scholarship Relief Fund and involve the Lubbock and Red Raider community in helping a few of their own. 


The College of Human Sciences is dedicated to improving and enhancing the human condition. More than 5,000 students and countless alumni and friends have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey. For these people, Harvey has damaged homes and devastated lives. For others serving in the National Guard and in medical residencies, their lives will be disrupted as they respond to the call to serve others. These effects will be felt for months to come.

Course participation costs $10 per person, and all donations and participation fees will benefit the scholarship fund. Participation in the course is not required to submit a donation. Registrants are encouraged to participate in teams of two, and those without a partner will be teamed up at the event. There will be 12 obstacles for participants, and a family-friendly area will feature kid-friendly activities.

Anyone interested in donating or participating can find more information here.
