If you've never done a 5k before, it is such a rewarding experience.  It's only about 3 miles and you can go at your own pace.  You do not have to be a runner to participate.  Run or walk - whatever is most comfortable to you.  The most important thing is that you get out there and participate.  You'll meet folks and talk along the way.  And the feeling of accomplishment when you cross that finish's awesome!!  Come out and join us!


The goal is to have at least 25 alumni members on our team.  Register today to join the team!  Click here to visit the team's web page and register.
