Western Wyoming Community College and the Exercise Science Program will host the 5th annual 5k run (or walk), Run With Sandy on May 1, with registration starting at 8:30AM at the Western Commons. Immediately following the run, breakfast will be served in Western Commons by the Kiwanis group.
Sandy Mitchell taught biology at Western for 28 years but passed away on May 8, 2017, from breast cancer. She was highly revered and loved by Western students and faculty, alike. There are many accounts of Mitchell having a long-lasting impact on people’s lives.
Mitchell was an avid runner. Run with Sandy is a non-profit event that will raise money to be donated to Sweetwater Regional Cancer Center. All donations of any amount are greatly welcomed and appreciated.
Participants can complete a 5k walk (3 laps) around Western’s outdoor track on campus or a 5k run (Gateway/Skyline loop). For those who will be walking, please sign up for the 9:00AM time slot. For those planning to run, please sign up for the 9:30 AM time slot.
Registration is by donation, and open to the public. T-shirts will be available on a first-come basis for those who make a $20 donation or more while supplies last. The community is encouraged to participate.
