Unclassified staff organizing Race for the Cure team
9:14:00 AM CDT - Tuesday, August 26, 2003
For the second year, the Unclassified Professional Senate is organizing a WSU team to participate in the 14th Annual Susan G. Komen Wichita Race for the Cure, being held Saturday, Sept. 27.
The race benefits the Mid-Kansas affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Any WSU employee or student, along with their family members and friends, can join the team. Participants can choose to walk or to run and compete in the 5K run/walk. The co-ed 5K run/walk starts at 8:30 a.m., while a one-mile fun walk starts at 9:45 a.m. Both events start at the Towne East Square, Cinemas IV parking lot, near Douglas and Armour. "Spirit walkers" can enter and participate "in spirit," too, according to race organizers.
Last year's WSU team had 30 participants, but the UPS planning committee hopes to have more this year, according to team organizer Julia Lee.
The entry fee is $20 per person and includes a race T-shirt. The deadline to register for the WSU team is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 10. For a registration form or other race information contact Lee at 978-5582 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Send the registration form and entry fee by the deadline to Lee at campus box 1 or deliver to 203 Morrison Hall.
You may also register online at www.komenwichitaraceforthecure.org and pay by credit card. If you register online, contact Lee and let her know you have registered for the WSU team and give her the T-shirt size you requested.
