ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2019
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2019, over 7,000 young leaders applied to join the Class of 2019 on 1,209 campuses across 135 nations. 69 campuses worldwide (just 6%) were selected to host the 1,092 Millennium Fellows. The Class of 2019 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 978,400 people worldwide this year.
“I think this is an amazing program and an amazing opportunity to make a difference in the community and the world. I have always loved community service, starting new programs, and making a difference in the community, the world, and people's lives. This provides me the chance to create a 5K in memory of my dad and to spread awareness about heart attacks and heart disease. Through this program, I will be able to raise money and educate people about heart attacks, so one day, no one else will have to lose a loved one to a heart attack.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Richard Lowell Weaver Heart Attack Awareness 5K: I will be organizing a 5K on Widener's campus. There will be food and drinks to buy at the 5K and merchandise to buy, to help raise money. Anyone can come: students, family, friends, pets, anyone. I will read why this is important to me and about my dad before the 5K. The money will then be donated to the American Heart Association in memory of Richard Lowell Weaver, who is my dad.
I will continue to advertise and have people sign up. I will then measure my impact by the amount of people that show up to the 5K and the amount of money that I am able to raise and donate to the American Heart Association in memory of my dad. My goal is to raise over $2,000 to donate, and possibly have this be an annual event.
