Race to support Center for Alcohol Studies and Education

RELEASED: Oct. 7, 2011

CASE Race

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will hold the sixth annual running of The Saving Race Oct. 22 to coincide with UW-Eau Claire's Parents' Weekend.

The 5K run and 1-mile family run/walk, organized by the Center for Alcohol Studies and Education, will begin at 10 a.m. Oct. 22 in the Haas Fine Arts Center area.

In honor of friends who take care of one another, this year's theme is "Be an Everyday Hero." Race participants are encouraged to come dressed as a superhero.

The Saving Race is held in memory of Michael Noll and other UW-Eau Claire students who have died in alcohol-related tragedies.

Proceeds from the event help support CASE's peer education efforts to reduce high-risk drinking and its negative consequences.

Registered recipients will receive race T-shirts; prizes will be awarded for the best costumed superhero individual and team.

Registration materials are available at the CASE website or in the CASE office in Room 30 of Schofield Hall. Same-day registration will begin at 9 a.m. in the Haas Fine Arts Center parking lot.

UW-Eau Claire students and community members are welcome to participate.

For more information about The Saving Race, visit the CASE website or contact Stephanie Pyykola at 715-836-5110 or pyykolsk@uwec.edu.
