OSU's Wellness Department is planning a 5K run to benefit a charity.
The OSU Department of Wellness is featuring a 5K fun run through campus on March 14 at 9 p.m. to benefit Soles4Souls charity.
OSU prides itself in coming up with fun and creative ways to encourage healthy activities. One way OSU does this is by offering different themed 5K runs.
“The lucky leprechaun glow run is an innovative and fun event for members of the OSU community to be exposed to not only the 5K but also other activities offered through the Department of Wellness,” said Jason Vlastaras, fitness coordinator at the Colvin Recreation Center.
During the fall semester of 2012, the department held the midnight glow run 5K, which was the first fun run allowed on the OSU campus at night. Participants could either pay $10 or $5 and two canned goods to help stock the OSU food closet. The midnight glow run raised 526 cans of food. The lucky leprechaun run hopes to build on the success of the midnight glow run.
