The James G. Mill Inaugural 5K Run/Walk is getting closer!

The staff has been working very hard to coordinate its inaugural 5K run/walk. It promises to be a great time with music, free food and drink, awards for the top three in each age bracket, and a free T-shirt for all participants! Proceeds from each registration form will benefit the Big Hearts Little Hands program. This event will be Saturday, April 30, 2011.

Registration fee is $17. You can pick up a registration form in the fitness center on the second floor of Zink Hall or visit the Inaugural James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness 5K Run/Walk webpage for an electronic version of the form.

We are offering a special incentive for non-members of the fitness center to join the 5K. If you sign up for the 5K and want to become a member of the fitness center, we will waive your $15 enrollment fee for first-time members!

And remember, if you are a member of the fitness center and you get five or more people to sign up for the 5K, you will receive a free Co-op gift card!

We want as many members of the IUP community to be at this inaugural event not only to support this great cause, but to have a great time at one of our last weekends together this semester.

So, bring your friends and family to the 5K! And we hope to see you either running fast or walking hard!

If you have any questions regarding the 5K, please feel free to contact Shaina Smith at 724-357-6251 or at s.d.smith4@iup.edu.
