The Fisher 5K

My activity with the Fisher 5K Association has really increased the past two weeks.  The Fisher 5K Association is a student organization that is responsible for organizing the annual Fisher 5K charity race.   The Fisher 5K is an annual Run/Walk (5 kilometers or 3.1 miles) which began in 2004 and is held on The Ohio State University campus.  It is the largest service event hosted by the Fisher graduate programs.  All the proceeds of the race go to support the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus.  In 2009, we had 608 race registrants and raised $21,000 for the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus.  We are already close to 300 registrations and are looking to get another 500 more.

This year the race will be held on April 25, 2010. The official start time for the Fisher 5K is 9:00 AM.  If you haven’t signed up, I encourage you to do so.  If you have signed up, convince friends and family to sign-up and run/walk with you.
