Phi Theta Kappa Alumni of Washburn University (PTKAW) is holding a 5K on Washburn’s campus. We have a suggested donation of $15 per person (we cannot charge fees on campus). Half of donations will benefit PTKAW; 25% will benefit Community Health Ministry and 25% will benefit the Phi Theta Kappa Kansas/Nebraska Region. PTKAW is a Washburn student organization for students who were in the Phi Theta Kappa honor society in two-year colleges who have transferred to WU; PTK is the largest honor society for two-year colleges in the United States and globally. Our goals are to promote WU to current PTK members and promote PTK to current two-year college students. We also aim to participate in volunteer projects with organizations with whom we have worked while at the 2-year college, which is why we are glad to partner with CHM to help promote their work. We are also donating funds to the PTK Kansas/Nebraska Region to help support their programs such as scholarships and member conventions. Still awaiting WU police to finally approve our route proposal, which will start at the intersection of 21st and Washburn, complete 1 lap around the campus, and end just past 17th and MacVicar (1.5 laps around campus). Registration begins at 9:30. Please RSVP for this event by e-mailing us at email@example.com by Wednesday, March 29; please e-mail us with additional questions!
Dog ‘n Jog is a fun family event surrounding a 10K, 5K, and 1.5K run, held annually at Kansas State University’s Veterinary Health Center. This year it will be put on by the College of Veterinary Medicine Class of 2018 on April 2nd, 2017 and the proceeds will go to Kansas Specialty Dog Service (KSDS) Assistance Dogs, Inc.
KSDS is an Assistance Dogs International (ADI) accredited 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides guide dogs for the visually impaired, service dogs to assist individuals with physical disabilities and facility dogs to assist professionals in the field of education, counseling, health care, retirement or the legal system. The KSDS team breeds their own carefully selected lines of Labrador and Golden Retrievers and trains them from puppyhood socialization up to assistance dog graduation. The program graduated their first class of service dogs in 1991 and now they place assistance dogs throughout the country at no cost to an individual in need. We are excited to support them in their efforts to promote independence and inclusion with their highly-trained canine assistants and we hope you will join us for this fun fundraising event!
