Run or volunteer: UNCG Homecoming Walk/Run 5K

Photo from last year's 5K run/walkStart Homecoming’s busiest day off with a beautiful run/jog/walk through UNCG’s campus.

Proceeds from the Nov. 1 event benefit the Department of Campus Recreation Student Employee Professional Development Fund and the Staff Senate Scholarship fund.

In addition, organizers will collect old running shoes to donate to the Nike Reuse-A-Shoe program. The drop-off location will be at registration. Nike Reuse-A-Shoe program grinds old running shoes into material that makes athletic and playground surfaces.

Runners can register before the race or the day of. Also, organizers are still looking for volunteers to help out with the event: set-up, clean up, cheerleaders, race directors, etc. If interested in volunteering for the event, e-mail Marcus Thompson at mdthomp2@uncg.edu.

Details for the event, which starts at 9 a.m., are at http://campusrec.uncg.edu/fitness/programs/5k/.
