Kickstart Spring With The Coaches vs. Cancer 5K

With the advent of spring comes a few things many of us look forward to: ducks at the Hintz pond, baseball season, flowers, and 5Ks. Raising money and awareness are staples of the Penn State community, and tomorrow brings another opportunity to do both while working out your bod.

Event registration begins at 6:30 a.m., and the 12th annual Coaches vs. Cancer 5K will start at 8 a.m. Participants should meet at the Business Building Lawn on East Park Ave early in order to receive one of the 800 “high-quality t-shirts” that come with registration packets.

Coaches vs. Cancer is the combined effort of the American Cancer Society, Women’s Basketball Coaches Association, and the National Association of Basketball Coaches to raise money for the fight against cancer. Coaches Ed DeChellis and Coquese Washington work with a committee of students to plan the 5K every year.

The registration fee is $17 per individual, or $15 per person for teams of at least 8. All proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society and the Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund.

Stoop Kid’s Afraid to Leave the Stoop

Editor and graduating senior Caity Rogowski writes about living the questions, facing fears, sharing burdens, and accepting reality.

“If you’ve ever seen the movie You’ve Got Mail, you’ll understand me when I say I have the “Kathleen Kelly Syndrome.” I often have trouble saying exactly what I mean. Instead, I find it easier to outsource by using quotes or songs to convey my message. That’s why you’ll find a few of my favorites scattered throughout this post: my senior column.”
