Representatives from Indiana University Fort Wayne and Purdue University Fort Wayne are teaming up to raise money for their respective student relief funds by hosting the third annual Campus United 5k.
The race will take place on Saturday, April 22, at 9 a.m. and will begin at Walb Student Union. The route winds through campus and along parts of the river greenway. The walk/run is designed to take participants through campus so they can see every major building and landmark of the universities. The 5k is open to the general public, as well as campus faculty, staff, students, and alumni.
“Although IU Fort Wayne and Purdue Fort Wayne are two separate institutions on one campus, we are united in our efforts to take care of our students inside and outside of the classroom,” said Nick Brand, Purdue Fort Wayne. “College is stressful enough for students, and we want to help ease that where we can.”
Registration for the Campus United 5K is $25 and can be completed online through April 21 at 11:59 p.m.
