THON FT5K to be Held October 13th

THON is an ever-evolving institution. If it did not partner with the Four Diamonds Fund, where would it be today? While THON is not really about totals, how much less would have been raised if canning and THONveloping were never started?

One of the newer, and exciting, fundraisers the IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon has to offer is the FT5K. The annual 3.1 mile fun run, which started 12 years ago, has boasted one of the most exciting atmospheres outside of the February THON weekend.

There will be the kids race, many performances by different student clubs and organizations, DJs, and of course, the actual 5K itself. The events will take place on October 13th, 2012, on the corner of Curtin Road and University Drive (where the BJC is). Registration for the fun run is $15, or you can pay $18 for a competitive timing chip, and everything can be credited towards a specific org. For more information you can visit the site here.
