Saturday's (April 19) Diet Pepsi/UNO Women's Walk raised $313,778 for women's athletic scholarships. A total of 986 walkers took part in the 23rd edition of the walk on the University of Nebraska at Omaha campus. The amount brings the all-time total raised by the event to $3,492,262 since the inception of the annual walk in 1986. The walk is the primary fundraiser for women's athletic scholarships at UNO. "The response of everyone involved was remarkable again," UNO Senior Woman Administrator and event coordinator Rose Shires said. "It was a great event and doesn't come off without a lot of dedicated volunteers."
