PULLMAN, Wash. — Despite cold wind, rain and even snow, nearly 400 joggers, walkers and runners from the Washington State University community crossed the Campus on the Run finish line March 31 morning to raise $1,000 for the local food bank.
The fourth annual Campus on the Run 5K, sponsored by WSU Health and Wellness Services, Community Service Learning Center and Intramural Sports, raised the money for the Community Action Center. The donation will help purchase food in the summer months when contributions decrease.
Each year, the 3.1-mile walk/run provides a unique opportunity for the WSU community to give back to the greater Palouse community, event officials said.
Intramural championship T-shirts were awarded to the top male and female in each age division. Graduate student Ronn Smith was the first to finish the race this year with a time of 16:42 minutes.
The male and female winners of each age division are listed as follows: Kyle Green and Casey Carlson, (18-20); Josh Proctor and Lucy Chase, (21-24); Ronn Smith and Heather Newberry, (25-34); Josh Schneider and Sylvia Cloutier, (35-44); Bill Pann and Jan Wiebold, (45-54); and Des O’Rourke and Lee Walls, (55+).
