The Xuân Gala event is one of the projects of the Council of State Representatives (CoSR). Xuân Gala aims to foster better relationships and interaction between alumni and undergraduate students while raising money for our Collective Philanthropy Project beneficiary the Catalyst Foundation. The event includes a 5k, Networking Hour, and Gala. This year’s theme is Superheroes to celebrate and honor all the heroes in our UVSA-Midwest community these last ten years!
The 5k extends throughout the University of Notre Dame’s campus to provide a scenic route for all runners. Whether you run or walk, you’ll be able to take in all of the beautiful campus! The top three runners will receive recognition at the Gala. Feel free to come in your best superhero outfits or bring props for the 5k to match our theme!
The Networking Hour immediately follows the 5k. Everyone is encouraged to go to Brothers Bar & Grill for lunch and drinks to cool down after the run. There, alumni and undergraduate students can mingle and get to know one another in a casual, fun setting!
During the Gala, we will recognize the runners with the top three fastest times during the 5k, alumni, and outgoing CoSR. We will also award superlatives and have performances! If you would like to perform for the Gala, please fill out the form on the Entertainment page under the Xuân Gala tab.
