5K For Families

Donate.Run.Have Fun!

Join the Office of Student Life’s 5K for Families, Sunday, March 29 for our family fun run! This 5K will look to give students, faculty, staff and their families a chance to give back to our local community. The entry into the run is free. However, we are asking participants to donate at least two articles of clothing in various sizes suitable for families. If you are unable to donate clothing we are also accepting monetary donations starting at $5 dollars. Please drop-off donations the day of the event during registration. All donations will be divided evenly amongst several local shelters supporting families. For your in-kind donation you will receive a “5K for Families” t-shirt!

Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the 5K begins at 9:30 a.m. The run will begin and end at the Lower West RPAC Plaza. Healthy snacks will be provided. #BuckeyesGive
