Register for the Third Annual Panther 5K Run/Walk
SFCC will hold its third annual Panther 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, Feb. 25, 8 a.m., at the SFCC Highlands Campus. Registration will be held 7-7:45 a.m. The race is a fundraiser for SFCC Athletics and helps with scholarships, equipment, travel costs, or whereever the need is greatest.
“Anyone ages six and up can participate,” said Rick Hitt, SFCC athletics director. “Four-legged friends are even welcome as long as they are kept on leashes. It’s an all-around great event because it brings people to our beautiful campus and provides a fundraising opportunity for athletics.”
The course runs through the Highlands Campus and along College Drive. “The course is exactly the same as last year,” said Don Appelquist, director, SFCC Foundation, Inc. “This gives people an additional incentive to participate because last year, runners set records in each of their age and gender categories. This year, participants can focus on trying to beat those records.”
The entry fee is $30. Students with a current SFCC I.D. may register for $20. Entry forms are available online at http://www.southflorida.edu/_documents/Panther5K_Registration.pdf. For information about the SFCC Panther 5K Run/Walk or for directions, call the SFCC Foundation at 863-453-3133.
