5K Run & Walk Planned March 28 at SWOSU

Southwestern Oklahoma State University students are planning a Tough Enough to Wear Teal 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, March 28, in Weatherford.

Runners/walkers can now register at signmeup.com or in the Dean of Students Office in the Stafford Center (Room 214).

Cindy Dougherty, dean of students, said all proceeds will go toward the battle against ovarian cancer. For the past eight years, the 5K “Pink” run had benefitted breast cancer research.

The race is USATF certified, chip timed and begins at 9 a.m. near the Clock Tower on the SWOSU campus. Pre-registration fee is $35.

T-shirts for the event are now on sale for $10 and can be purchased/ordered in Stafford Center 214. Dougherty said $5 from each shirt will be donated to the cause.
