Be there on Saturday, August 19, 2017, for The Baroudeur, Wayne State University’s cycling event to raise money for student scholarships.

The Baroudeur is a fun, noncompetitive event that gives riders of all abilities an opportunity to explore the Motor City and surrounding area on two wheels while helping economically disadvantaged students pursue higher education.

Fundraising proceeds will directly benefit scholarships and the university’s Helping Individuals Go Higher (HIGH) program, which supports students whose unstable housing situations threaten their dreams of earning a degree. Even though Wayne State has the lowest undergraduate tuition rate among Michigan’s three research universities, cost can be a major hurdle. In fact, approximately 77% of our undergraduate students receive some type of financial aid. For some students, just a few hundred dollars can make the difference between staying in school or dropping out – and your support can help fill the gap.
