Chucky Mullins #38 will forever be a legend at The University of Mississippi. Orphaned as a child and later adopted by his high school coach, he overcame life’s obstacles and went on to play football for Ole Miss. Sadly, Chucky lost his life due to an injury sustained during a game.

Chucky’s words “Never Quit” hold special meaning for everyone who hears his story.

Today, The Great 38 Race Weekend, now in its fourth year, benefits the Chucky Mullins Endowment, which assists Ole Miss students who have a physical disability or demonstrate exceptional financial need.

Ole Miss Athletics and the entire university community come together to make The Great 38 Race Weekend the most meaningful and inspirational run in Mississippi. In 2018, over 800 participants ran in one of the three races: 5k, 8-miler, or half-marathon, through the beautiful award-winning UM campus, down the Walk of Champions, and into Vaught Hemingway Football Stadium where they saw themselves on the Jumbotron as they crossed the finish line at the38-yard line! Join us October 25-27 for this year’s Great 38!
