Kettering College hosts fourth annual Spring Into Health 5K

Fun run/walk is a fundraiser for Dayton’s Good Neighbor House

Kettering, Ohio - 2/20/2012

Kettering, Ohio (Feb. 20) – Kettering College will host its fourth annual Spring Into Health 5K run/walk on Sunday, April 15, starting at 2 p.m. at the college (3737 Southern Blvd.). Registration and packet pick-up begin at 1 p.m. in front of the school.

The cost is just $25 for participants registering before Wednesday, April 4, and the first 250 registrants are guaranteed a t-shirt. Kettering College students can register at the school’s front desk for just $15. More information and a link to online registration can be found at KC.edu/5K.

The annual event is a fundraiser for Dayton’s Good Neighbor House (75%) and for the college’s Physician Assistant Student Professional Development Fund (25%). Good Neighbor House, founded by eight Dayton-area Adventist churches in 1994, gives help and hope to the underserved in the Dayton community, providing food pantry services, health promotion, clothing and household items to individuals and families in need.

The third annual race in 2011 garnered 125 registrants – the highest participation level in the history of the event – and raised $2,000 for Good Neighbor House. The college’s goal for the 2012 event is to register at least 250 participants.
