9th Annual UMW 5K Run starts and finishes in near Goolrick Gymnasium next to the Fitness Center on the beautiful UMW campus. The course is a scenic run through the campus and the surrounding neighborhood.Proceeds will be donated to the UMW Athletic Dept., specifically the Men's and Women's Basketball Programs.
This year the race organizers encourage you to consider making a donation to the "Nothing But Nets" campaign which uses the donations to buy mosquito nets to battle malaria, a leading cause of death among African children. See http://www.nothingbutnets.net for details. We will again also serve as a drop off for used running shoes. Shoes will be collected in boxes/bags near the starting line and given to a local effort to recycle used running shoes for Africa. Last year over 100 pairs of shoes were collected.
