About Spring into Health 5K
Kettering College and the Physician Assistant Program presented its tenth annual Spring into Health 5K run/walk, benefiting Dayton’s Good Neighbor House (75%) and the College’s Physician Assistant Student Professional Development Fund (25%).
Almost 300 runners and walkers turned up for the tenth annual Spring into Health 5K in April 2018, raising more than $8,000 for Good Neighbor House and the physician assistant department’s student professional development fund. In July 2018, students in the physician assistant department, who have been the primary organizers of the event since its start, awarded Good Neighbor House staff with a donation as a result of this race.
