The Sonoma State University Alumni Association is holding the Heart of SSU 5K Saturday, Sept. 9. Registration closes on Aug. 30. Proceeds from the family friendly 5K benefit the Heart of SSU Alumni Scholarship Endowment.
The Heart of SSU 5K will start at 9 a.m. with check in at 8 a.m. The fun run allows dogs and strollers to join the whole family on their run or walk through the Sonoma State campus. Post-race festivities include music, snacks and a beer garden.
Registration for the 5K comes with chip timing, a T-shirt and snacks. SSU Alumni can join the 5K for a special price of $30. Children 13 and under can enter for free, students 14 and older are $20. General registration is $40.
The proceeds benefit the Heart of SSU Scholarship Endowment, a grassroots effort established by the SSU Alumni Association in 2015 to create a fund by former students for the new generation. Scholarships will cover a full year’s tuition with the first award being received fall 2018.
