C. Pat Run 5K is April 23; community welcome

The Southwest Baptist University Student Association is hosting the fourth annual C. Pat Run 5K at 8 a.m. Saturday, April 23. The race begins and ends on the SBU campus.

Participants can choose between a 5K and a 1-mile walk/run. Both races start at 8 a.m., with check-in beginning at 7 a.m. at SBU’s Meyer Wellness and Sports Center.

Pre-registration for the race is $15, which includes a T-shirt and race participation, and can be completed online at https://forms.sbuniv.edu/5k.asp. Pre-registration, which will guarantee a T-shirt, ends April 14.

“Anyone is welcome to join us in this community-wide event,” said SBU senior and Student Association President Richard Young. “This year we have also teamed up with the Physical Therapy Department. I’m glad they could join us and we could coordinate the event together.”

Student Association is an organization that seeks to make an impact at SBU and in the community through sponsoring clubs and organizations and working on campus improvement projects to continue shaping SBU into a better place for students to thrive.

“The C. Pat Run is a great opportunity for students and the community to come together, have a good time and support projects that improve our campus and, in turn, our city,” Young said. “I’m excited to see what we can accomplish when we all come together!”
