More than 200 students
took part in the annual
3.1 mile Turkey Trot held
Nov. 21 on the South Campus
Fields. Students, faculty and
staff braved the cold for the 5K
run, wearing hats, gloves and
sweatshirts. Some students
chose to wear left-over
halloween costumes instead.
In order to participate in
the run, community members
had to donate two non-
perishable food items. Campus
Recreation, who hosted the
event, collected 536 canned
goods from the event. They will
donate the goods to Loaves and
Fishes Christian Food Ministry.
