The Collegian, the student newspaper at South Dakota State University, is reporting that the SDSU Pre-Professional Club is hosting a 5K and walk-a-thon to benefit the African Well Fund this Saturday, April 5, at Brookings High School in Brookings, S.D.
According to the article by Amy Poppinga, the Pre-Professional Club hopes to raise $10,000 for AWF at the run/walk-a-thon. The organization has reached out to the Brookings community for donations. The organization is also charging a $20 entry fee.
The 5K will begin at 8 a.m. The walk-a-thon begins at 9 a.m. and will end at 2. A D.J. will play music during the walk-a-thon, refreshments will be available for race participants and the first 120 people to sign up for either race will receive a free T-shirt, the newspaper reports.
A slogan for the event, The Collegian reports, is “come and run so they don’t have to walk.”
