The student-run event raises money for undergraduate student scholarships through the Little 500 Financial Emergency Fund. Proceeds from the Little 500 contribute to the fund, which supports students who face obstacles to continuing their education at IU Bloomington due to financial hardship. Since it began in 1951, the Little 500 has raised more than $2 million for student scholarships.
Watch the races live online at broadcast.iu.edu or via the IU Student Foundation’s Facebook live stream. WIUX student radio will also call the action.
