Live Like Lou 5K Run/Walk

Kent, OH



Please join us on Saturday February 25, 2023 for the 2nd Annual Live Like Lou 5K Run/Walk! The event is being brought to you by Phi Delta Theta fraternity (Kent State University) to raise funds and awareness for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. The event is open to the general public and everyone is welcome to join the fun!

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord that results in the wasting away of muscle, loss of movement and eventual paralysis. There are an estimated 30,000 people living with ALS in the United States at any given time. Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with ALS. About 90% of all ALS cases are sporadic with no known history of the disease in a family.


 
START/FINISH
The race will start and finish in at Risman Plaza at the Kent Student Center using the proposed course map shown below. The official start time will be 12pm. There will be one water station located near the midpoint and light snacks and bottled water will be provided to runners at the finish line.
