Shenango holds fourth annual 5K in memory of Jane Williams

Penn State Shenango will hold its fourth annual Dr. Jane A. Williams Memorial 5K Run/1.5 Mile Walk beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3, at the Shenango campus located in downtown Sharon, Pennsylvania. The event is in honor of Williams, who was employed at the Shenango campus for 25 years before dying after a brief illness.

This is the second year in a row that the Williams 5K includes a “Buckeyes vs. Nittany Lions” theme. Participants are encouraged to sport their favorite Ohio State or Penn State gear -- special prizes will be awarded for the most spirit.

Registration forms are available in the Student Affairs Office, Sharon Hall room 103 or online at shenango.psu.edu/jane5k. Runners/walkers can register from now until 8:30 a.m. on the day of the event. The cost is $20 for runners and $15 for walkers.

Awards will be presented to the top three finishers in each age group and top overall man and woman. For more information, contact the Student Affairs Office at 724-983-2836.
