Costume Fun Run set Oct. 27 to benefit ISU Student Physical Therapy Association

Posted October 18, 2012

The Idaho State University Wellness Center and ISU Student Physical Therapy Association will host the Oct. 27 Costume Fun Run that begins at ISU Reed Gymnasium at 10 a.m.

Participants may choose to run or walk 2.5-kilometer, 5-kilometer, or 10-kilometer routes in this untimed event. Costume prizes will be awarded in several categories, including pet costumes.

On-site registration begins at 9 a.m. The cost of the fun run is $7 for adults, $5 for ISU students and $2 for children aged 12 and under.  T-shirts will be available in limited quantities for $5 each.  At 11:30 a.m., the Student Physical Therapy Association will have special activities and prizes available for young children.

Local merchants have generously donated door prizes that will be drawn at 11:30 a.m. on the day of the fun run. Participants do not need to be present to win the door prizes. Area businesses have also contributed to individual goody bags, which will be given to each participant in this rain-or-shine event.

Participants who choose to run/walk with a pet must have them on a leash and under control at all times. Pet potty bags will be available and should be carried and used when necessary. For safety reasons, no masks that cover the face/eyes will be permitted to be worn during the run/walk.

Proceeds from the event will support the ISU Student Physical Therapy Association, whose mission is "To educate the university, community, and state about physical therapy health care needs and to provide information and orientation material for prospective students."
