Hasn’t the weather in May been fantastic so far? I mean seriously – bright, sunny days…warm temperatures…it’s just the right weather to be outside!
Every year, Fisher does an incredible event in May called the Fisher 5k – you guessed it, a 5k run/walk (or even a crawl, according to Rob). The Fisher 5k is always a lot of fun, but the heart of the event lies in service, which makes it even better. It has been an annual event since 2004 and claims the title of the largest 5k on campus. Proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus. Just to brag a little…in 2011, the Fisher 5k raised over $21,000 for the Boys and Girls Club. Yeah, not too shabby!
Registration for the “race” (it is a race, but you certainly don’t have to treat it like one!) is open! Further, registration is not open to just students. Anyone can race – the more the merrier! The Fisher 5k is also accepting volunteers, if that’s more your style. Definitely consider getting involved in one of these two ways… I will be!
Here are the quick facts for the 5k:
- The race is May 20th at 9.00 AM
- Preregistration is open, but you can register day of the race from 7.00AM-8.45AM
- This year features a brand new course that winds through campus! See the map above.
- Parking for the event is FREE
- Post race refreshments (bagels, fruit, beverages) are provided
The weather should be beautiful, you’re supporting a wonderful cause, and you’ll be surrounded by over 1,000 of your favorite Ohio State students, faculty, staff, alumni, and fans. Sign up today and join us for the 2012 Fisher 5k!
