Are you ready for the 5K? On Saturday, April 6, Panola College SGA will hold the third annual 5K, benefiting the Panola College Foundation.
This year, the 5K Run has been named the 5K Pony Express and is a certified and professionally timed 5K event. Register online at Panola College 5K Pony Express Online Registration.
Students in Brian Naples’s government classes may elect to participate in the 5K. They must have a minimum of four individual sponsors at $20 each, and one business sponsor at $50.
Time is running out for companies and organizations to become 5K t-shirt sponsors by contributing $300 to the fundraising event. T-shirt sponsors’ company names and logos will be printed on the back of the 2013 5K shirt.
Donations are suggested at the following levels: $20, $30, $40, $50 and $100. To sponsor a corner with a sign, donation level is $150. Corporate sponsorships at $500 are encouraged. Naples says that the Panola College Foundation will accept donations of any amount.
Checks should be made payable to Panola College Foundation. Donations are tax-deductible and the Foundation Tax ID number is 75-1846813.
Funds raised at the event support the Panola College Foundation Endowment, which supports student scholarships.
Check-in time for the event will be 8 a.m. on April 6 in front of the Miller Administration Building. (Last year’s event held registration in front of the Gullette Technology Building.)
Although it’s called a 5K Run, participants are welcome to walk the route instead of running.
The Panola College Foundation, led by a volunteer board of business and community leaders, supports and promotes Panola College. For more information, check out the Panola College Foundation.
