JayWalk History

JayWalk is a race that was initially created to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Creighton University and the special relationship that all three of Omaha's Jesuit schools share: Creighton University, Creighton Prep and Jesuit Academy. Jesuit Academy provides a comprehensive quality education to 4th-8th grade boys from the North Omaha area. Jesuit Academy prepares its graduates academically, socially and spiritually for a lifetime of leadership. They are committed to walking with and supporting their graduates through high school and into college. 

CSU is proud to say that since the first race 13 years ago, Jaywalk has raised over $80,000 to Jesuit Academy. That money has gone towards student scholarships, facilities, and a new gymnasium floor.

As some of you know, Jaywalk is coming back this year! Jaywalk is a race that was initially created to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Creighton University and the special relationship that all three of Omaha's Jesuit schools share: Creighton University, Creighton Prep and Jesuit Academy. Jesuit Academy provides a comprehensive quality education to 4th-8th grade boys from the North Omaha area. Jesuit Academy prepares its graduates academically, socially, and spiritually for a lifetime of leadership.

This year, Jaywalk will be held on campus during Parent's Weekend on Saturday, September 18th at 8am! It will be a 2.5km loop that starts at the Gallegher fountain and ends at the KFC lawn where there will be a pancake bar feast and games to interact with fellow students and Jesuit Academy students. We have incredible raffle prizes, including Men's and Women's basketball season tickets that will be up for raffle at the event! Registration is $8 for students and $12 for family members and other affiliates and all proceeds go directly to Jesuit Acadamy. This event is open to all Creighton students, family of Creighton students, Creighton faculty, staff, and family, Jesuit Academy, and Creighton Prep affiliates and we are expecting a big turn out!
