Register Online for UK FUSION

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 19, 2011) – The ninth annual UK FUSION (UK For Unity and Service In Our Neighborhoods) is just around the corner, but it is not too late for students to get involved!

Online registration for student volunteers is open until noon Sunday, Aug. 21. Student volunteers wishing to participate in FUSION, but who did not register online can show up on Haggin Field the day of FUSION. While placement can't be guaranteed, the FUSION team will work extremely hard to accommodate all volunteers.

Geraldine Goh, 2011 FUSION executive director, encourages students to participate. "FUSION is a one-day service event allowing UK students, both incoming and current, to work in groups to meet needs of local nonprofits and neighborhoods. This is the ninth year for FUSION, establishing it as a true UK tradition."

This year, UK FUSION aims to be bigger and better than ever before, with approximately 1,500 student, faculty and staff volunteers serving more than 100 sites across the city of Lexington. The UK family gives more than 5,000 hours of service to Lexington as part of FUSION, making it the largest single-day service project in the Commonwealth.

UK FUSION 2011 is Monday, Aug. 22, at Haggin Field on UK's campus. Student volunteers should arrive by 10 a.m. to check in and select a site. A sack lunch is provided and the day ends with a celebration.
