Please join Champlain College for the third annual Sarah Ramsey Strong 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, Oct. 1, to benefit the Sarah Ramsey ‘12 Strong Fund scholarship.
Registration starts at 3 p.m. and the race begins at 4 from Champlain College’s Lakeside Miller Center at 175 Lakeside Ave. The route along the Burlington Bike Path takes participants to the Burlington Waterfront, and then back to Lakeside. Pre-register for the race online at sarahramseystrong.com or at the door on the day of the event. All fitness levels and ages are welcome to participate.
Following the race, there will be an after party to celebrate the grand opening of Champlain College’s new Sarah Ramsey ’12 Innovation Lab, located in Champlain’s Ireland building at 391 Maple St. There will be free shuttles from the Miller Center to main campus.
The annual Sarah Ramsey Strong 5K is held in memory of alumna Sarah Elizabeth Ramsey ’12. Proceeds from the race benefit the Sarah Ramsey Strong Scholarship Fund and the new Innovation Lab (or iLab) at Champlain College at Stiller School of Business. Named in Sarah’s honor, the iLab was announced at last year’s 5K, and is intended to evoke her creativity and passion for innovation, which blossomed during her time at Champlain.
