The members of Alpha Phi Omega at Gettysburg College are holding their annual Anything is PAULssible 5K Run/Walk. Proceeds from this race go toward the Paul Detweiler Memorial Scholarship Foundation (given to an incoming Gettysburg student who exemplifies the same values Paul displayed in his lifetime) and toward putting on this race every year.
This will be a virtual run/walk:
You can register as a Virtual Runner for the weekend of April 9th-11th
The virtual run provides participants the ability to participate in the Anything is PAULssible 5K no matter what location they are in. Participants simply pledge to complete the physical requirement of 3.1 miles (a 5K) in whatever location they may be in around the world. The run can be completed at your own discretion (at an official race or on your own time). Participants can choose any day/time during the weekend to run/walk on their own or with a socially distant friend.
This event has been created in loving memory of Paul Detweiler. Paul was a student at Gettysburg College and an active member of Alpha Phi Omega who passed away in 2013 after a yearlong battle with a brain tumor. His dream during his time in Alpha Phi Omega was to put on a 5K fundraiser for charity and although this wasn’t possible during his lifetime, we continue to honor his dream and legacy through the Anything is Paulssible 5K.
