ISU students and faculty gathered together on Tuesday evening outside the Health and Human Services Building on fourth street for the start of the event at 4 p.m. A total of 305 registered for the 5k event. At a $5 entry fee per individual ISU students were able to raise $1525. All the money raised will be donated the to Ryves Hall Community Center.
Kathy Ginter, Pe 101 coordinator said the students had a chance to test themselves and a way for them to engage within the community.
“I ran in highschool and wanted to do my own races in college,” said Abby Hall, freshman elementary and special education major. Hall was last semester’s top female runner and kept the title this semester completing the 5k in 22:31.
Chris Zadroga, graduate student in physical education and coaching said. Zadroga was the 5k top male runner completing the race in 16:33.
“I ran it to win,” Zadroga said.
