Sponsors Sought for Tough Enough 5K Run & Walk Set for Next March


Sponsors are being sought for the 6th annual SWOSU Tough Enough to Wear Pink 5K run and walk, which is scheduled for Saturday, March 30, 2013.

The 9 a.m. event benefits the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. The Tough Enough to Wear Pink 5K is USATF sanctioned with a certified course and chip timing. Racers can register for $35. The price includes a t-shirt, gift bag and a full hot brunch after the race. 

This year’s 5K committee chair is Miss SWOSU, Tia Sauer of Weatherford. Sponsors already donating to the cause are SWOSU’s Biology Department, SWOSU’s Collegiate Activities Board (CAB) and Sides Screenprinting.

One pre-race fundraiser and awareness campaign is the CAB-sponsored basketball game “Pink Out” on Thursday, February 28. Tough Enough to Wear Pink t-shirts will be on sale before the game and the entire crowd will be asked to dress in pink.

For information on sponsoring the race or any other questions related to the 5K, please contact the Dean of Students office at 580.774.3767 or studentdean@swosu.edu.
