The James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness 5K Run/Walk is quickly approaching!

Don’t miss your chance to sign up this week in order to ensure that you get your free t-shirt! Walk-up registration is also welcome the day of the race.

The second annual 5K Run/Walk will be on Saturday, May 5, 2012, at IUP’s South Campus on University Drive next to the softball and baseball fields. Registration will begin at 10:00 a.m, and the race will commence at 11:00 a.m.

The price for the race is $15 for members and $17 for non-members. Included in the price will be a free t-shirt, free food and refreshments after the race, raffle give-a-ways, and awards for the top three in each age bracket.

Proceeds from registration will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

In addition to the goodies that the fitness center will provide, faculty, managers, SPFPA, OPEIU, and coaches and their covered spouse/same-sex domestic partner who are enrolled in the Highmark PPO or Indemnity plan can earn 25 Healthy U Points through participation in our 5K Run/Walk event! Please visit the Wellness Works website for more information.

With the success of last year’s 5K, our staff wants to make this year’s 5K even bigger and better! Our goal is to create an enjoyable atmosphere for as many members, community members, and students as possible, as well as provide a great workout and benefit an excellent cause.

So come out and join us for this fun and exciting event. Whether you are running for an award, to beat your own personal time, or simply walking for enjoyment, we hope to see you there!
