Schmidt Don’t Quit Kinesiology Scholarship Ride

The kinesiology faculty at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh are dedicated to providing an extraordinary educational experience for students interested in exercise and healthcare-related fields. They are also committed to providing scholarship opportunities for their students. 

The Schmidt Don’t Quit Kinesiology Scholarship Ride does just that. In its three years, the ride has raised nearly $10,000, all going towards kinesiology student scholarships. 

Dan Schmidt, Professor and Co-Chair of the Department of Kinesiology, will once again bike across parts of Wisconsin to raise funds for kinesiology students. The fourth-annual Schmidt Don’t Quit Kinesiology Scholarship Ride is set for August 8-11.

This year, Dr. Schmidt will start at UW-Stout in Menomonie and bike the nearly 200 miles back to Oshkosh over four days, with previous scholarship recipients joining him at Bare Bones Brewery on August 11. These students will then ride the Wiouwash trail back to campus with him.

Your gift will provide valuable assistance to students on the road to graduation. They will receive an outstanding education and leave UWO prepared to help others improve their health and achieve their fitness goals.
