The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire American Marketing Association's 26th annual Fun Run will take place at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 26, in Carson Park's Oak Pavilion. The rollerblade race will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the run/walk begins at 10 a.m.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car and AMA are sponsoring the 5K walk/run/rollerblade to raise money for Special Olympics. The event includes the 5K walk in the morning, bands around noon, barbecue, beverages, competitions and door prizes, finishing with a bash at the Brat Kabin around 5 p.m. Runners receive free beverages, a t-shirt and a color changing cup for their effort.
The event is open to students, faculty, staff and the community. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the event and can be purchased at a booth in Davies Center and Schneider Hall three weeks prior to the race. A brochure and registration form that can be mailed in with the entry fee is also available on the AMA Web site at www.uwec.edu/ama.
The participants of the AMA campaign "aRe yoU iN" will be on campus with neon green promotional material to raise awareness for the Fun Run.
