SUNY Canton President Hosts Second 5K Challenge
SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy will be promoting health and fitness by hosting and running in the second President’s 5K Run/Walk Challenge.
The “5K with Dr. K” will begin at 4 p.m. Thursday, May 10, near the College’s turf field next to the Roos House Athletic Center. The course will include the scenic cross-country trails bordering the Grasse River. The race and the walk are free and open to the public, but pre-registration is strongly encouraged.
“There are a number of ways we encourage healthy lifestyles on campus,” Kennedy said. “We have spinning classes in our brand-new fitness center, healthy food options, and we are moving toward a tobacco free environment. Of everything we do, this race is my favorite event to promote fitness on campus and in our community.”
The first 25 registrants will receive a free t-shirt. Registration is available online at: http://www.canton.edu/challenge/
Kennedy is an avid runner who participates in numerous community-sponsored races.
Last year, the inaugural “5K with Dr. K” attracted approximately 120 runners and walkers from both the College and the area. On campus, the race has inspired good-natured rivalry among faculty, staff, and students.
