Coaches Vs. Cancer 5K This Saturday

Being a Penn State student means that hating cancer is a must, and this weekend, there is another event to show cancer our immense dislike for it! The 11th annual Coaches Vs. Cancer 5K Run/Walk is slated for this Saturday, April 17th at 11:00 AM beginning at the IM Building.

The charity is trying to beat their $11,000 fundraising total from last year. Here are some ways you can help:

1. Sign up for the race here.
2. Go to the HUB on Thursday and look for their table to donate or sign up for the race directly. You can also send your donation in check form to the Student Bookstore in lieu of racing.
3. Eat!! CVC is also holding a spaghetti dinner at the Grace Lutheran Church on the corner of Garner and Beaver on Friday night from 5-8pm. Participants in the race eat free and non-participants only pay $5 for all-you-can-eat pasta.

However you do it, get out there and help this awesome charity.  Once again, let cancer  Happy Valley is doing all it can to fight it.
