The third annual Crusader 5K & Madonna Mile were held this past Saturday, September, 27th on campus. This event is held each year to raise money for the Madonna University Student Emergency Fund. The fund is distributed to students who need financial support in emergency situations. Thanks to the help and support of many volunteers, sponsors and participants we are able to continue providing this support for students in emergency situations.
This year we had approximately 60 volunteers and 100 participants. Returning participant and top overall female runner, Laurel Park, took a 1:04 off her time from last year running a 18:57 5K. The top overall male runner was Chris Carbary with a 5K time of 22:37. For a complete list of the official race results go to http://a2racemanagement.com/results-crusader-5k-2/
We would like to thank our numerous sponsors including Biggby Coffee, Panera Bread, The Looney Baker, Westborn Market, Fitness 19, Papa Vinos, and Kroger for their support in helping us continue this event to benefit Madonna University students.
We look forward to seeing you at the next Crusader 5K & Madonna Mile. Thank you to everyone who came out for the event!
