Fort Wayne, Ind. – Indiana University Fort Wayne and Purdue University Fort Wayne are combining forces to raise money for their respective student relief funds by hosting their second annual Campus United 5k.
The race will take place on Saturday, April 23 at 9:00 am and will begin at Walb Student Union. The route winds through campus and along parts of the River Greenway. The walk/run is designed to take participants through campus so they can see every major building and landmark of the colleges. The 5k is open to campus faculty, staff, students, alumni and members of the community.
The two colleges have partnered with the Fort Wayne Running Club and the Campus United 5k is an official Points Series Race.
“Although IU Fort Wayne and Purdue Fort Wayne are two separate schools on one campus, we are united in our efforts to take care of our students inside and outside the classroom,” said Nick Brand, Purdue Fort Wayne Fitness Center Manager. “College is stressful enough for students, and we want to help ease that where we can.”
Registration for the Campus United 5K is $25 and you can register for the event until April 22 at 11:59 pm.
Generous support is provided by Big City Cars and the Mastodon Alumni Association.
