JustCo JustGo 5K Race - Summer Re:newal Festival
Saturday, May 3, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 11:00 AM (CDT)
JustCo JustGo Annual 5K:
This Spring, Wheaton College's Justice Coalition and College Union are hosting a 5K race to support local Glen Ellyn nonprofit Re:new Project in their effort to create hope for women. Re:new provides employment and community for refugee women living in the United States, and diligently adheres to its mission of human flourishing for all peoples. The Justice Coalition's aim for this race is that it will allow the College and surrounding community to come together and "play with purpose." The atmosphere of teamwork and togetherness that the race will foster amongst the participants, we hope will spill-over into the greater community as encourage and support one another in our daily lives. Sign up today!
The 5K is part of the larger Summer Re:newal Festival which also includes a free outdoor concert the night before. For more details on the entire festival, please visit Wheaton's Student Activities page.
