International Appalachian is proud to announce that registration has opened for our 5th annual Coffee Buzz 5k!!!
This year, the Coffee Buzz 5k will be run on the 8th of April, with the race starting at 10am. Sign up now to reserve your spot, and sign up as a group to receieve a discount!
The Coffee Buzz 5K is an annual race that International Appalachian (INTAPP) throws in order to raise money for the Landon Hill Study Abroad Scholarship.
INTAPP works hard to promote mutual respect for different cultures and to engage all students and community members in friendship and learning. The scholarship fund toward which all of our proceeds will go is in memory of one of our most dedicated members, Landon Hill, who died after contracting bacterial meningitis while studying abroad in Spain in the fall of 2011. Landon is a symbol of what our INTAPP members strive to be; while at Appalachian he was a leader in improving our organization and encouraged us all to hold ourselves accountable to reach our goals. He consistently reached out to the international students in meaningful ways—a fact made clear by the sheer number of Appalachian’s former international students he was able to visit at their home universities while he was abroad. Along with his passion for an international perspective, Landon truly enjoyed coffee. We thought there could be no better way to raise money for his scholarship than to run a 5K, and drink some coffee!
100% of the proceeds INTAPP raises go directly to the Landon Hill Memorial Scholarship.
If you have any questions about this year's race, please feel free to contact Outreach Committee Head Cam Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org).
