Running for veterans

Nov. 10 marks the third annual Veterans Day 5k race, sponsored by the Adult Learner and Veteran Services office and the Student Veterans Organization.

The race will take place at the Oval from 7:30-9 a.m. on Sat., Nov. 10. Net proceeds from the event benefit the CSU Veterans Scholarship to assist a disabled student veteran.

Preregistration is available online at www.active.com, keyword “Veterans Day.” The price is $25 for participants 17 & under, $30 for participants 18 & under, or $20 per person for teams of three or more. Fees increase by $5 the day of the race.

All race participants will receive a commemorative Veterans Day 5k t-shirt as well.
