Leadership Southwestern is hosting the Leadership Road Race on Saturday, April 14, at Southwestern College.
Two races will be available, a 5K beginning at 8:30 a.m., and a one-mile family fun run/walk at 9:15 a.m. Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers. Participants are also encouraged to run in costume. Prizes will be awarded to the best individual and group outfits.
This fundraising effort for Leadership Southwestern provides the team finances to carry out many community service projects and to go on service learning trips. Leadership Southwestern students contributed 10,000 hours of service to the community last year. Members participated in service projects locally, nationally, and internationally. They also taught middle school, high school, and college age students about servant leadership. Leadership students are holding this run to raise funds and also promote a healthy lifestyle.
Entry fee for the 5K run is $25; for the one-mile run/walk the fee is $15. Leadership Southwestern is offering an early registration discount. If registered on or before March 30, the fee for the 5K run is $20 and $12 for the one-mile run/walk. Teams of five or more who register together will be discounted $3 per person if registered on or before March 30. Participants may register online at www.sckans.edu/roadrace.
