The National Center on Deafness (NCOD) at the California State University, Northridge (CSUN) proudly hosts the 3rd Annual CSUN NCOD Sign n’ Run 5K ASL Festival. This event brings together a diverse community – Deaf, hard of hearing, hearing students, signers and non-signers, faculty, staff, alumni, interpreters, community, neighbors, and everyone else – to celebrate American Sign Language, Culture and Community. Included: 5K Timed Run/Walk or Stroll, exhibit booths, and an entertainment program featuring Deaf performers. For the 5K route map on CSUN campus, check www.csun.edu/ncod.
The admission fee includes a free official event shirt, snack, water, and entertainment. Register at least 3 weeks in advance to improve your chance to get a free t-shirt in your size.
The annual Sign n’ Run event provides opportunities for hands-on student leadership development and volunteerism. It is mostly run by students. Also importantly, the event raises much needed funds for student scholarships and programs.
