The 38th Annual CSU Homecoming 5k Race, coming up on Sunday, October 14, 9 a.m., is organized by the Department of Health and Exercise Science. Community members, students, children, alumni, and their families enjoy running or walking in this event as part of the Homecoming and Family Weekend festivities.
This year, the race comes back to campus with a new day and time and will start and finish at Moby Arena on Sunday. There will also be a free Kids’ Fun Run led by Cam the Ram.
All proceeds from the race support the Heart Disease Prevention Program, an exceptional outreach program directed by Tiffany Lipsey. The HDPP screens people for the presence or likely risk of heart disease and promotes healthy lifestyle changes. A strong focus is preventing heart disease in firefighters, a frequent cause of premature death in this profession. Currently, the HDPP serves 24 firefighting departments across Colorado. This program also provides unmatched learning experiences for undergraduate and graduate students.
