York College's Alumni Association will hold its inaugural 5K Run/Walk and SpartaKids Fun Run on Oct. 6. The event is sponsored by Northwestern Mutual and open to the public.
Registration for the 5K will be held from 7 – 8:15 a.m. at the Grumbacher Sport and Fitness Center's concession area, with a race start time of 8:30 a.m. Registration for the Spartakids Fun Run, for children 12 and under, will be held from 7:30 – 9 a.m., with the Run beginning at 9:10 a.m. Awards for both events will be presented at 9:50 a.m.
Entry fees are $25 for York College alumni, employees and community members. This includes a T-shirt, gift bag and small breakfast after the race. The SpartaKids Fun Run is free.
A portion of the money raised will help support the York College Fund, which helps to offset campus costs, keeps the College's tuition 50% less than the average tuition at other private colleges, and provides financial aid for 90% of students.
