5K Walk/Run for the Democratic Republic of Congo

Bears for UNICEF is getting ready for our annual 5K Walk/Run for Charity! This year, our cause is to help UNICEF's campaigns in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the event will be held on campus, Saturday April 19, 9am-2pm.

For more information, check out the Facebook event or email us at

We'll be needing volunteers to help with the event - passing out water, managing registration, and helping with the kid's "Cub Run" (games and face painting). If you're interested, come to our Wednesday meeting in 140 Barrows @ 7pm, or just send us an email. This is our biggest event of the semester, so we need all the help we can get!
