Founders' Day 5K features NSU history

Austin MacDonald

     It is time to run and get those legs working or watch the race. Come to the Founders’ Day 5K run on March 5 at 8:30 a.m. It starts and stops at Centennial Plaza on the south side of campus. There are going to be three different groups having an NSU 5K race. 
     Amanda Jones and Eric Ross wanted to have a 5K event. They held a meeting December 2009 and decided instead of having three 5K runs at different times that they would team up and have one race all together on Founders' Day. In March 2010, they had their first race with 220 runners.
    "This run reminds me of NSU's historical history, the course takes you through the campus and shows the history in the buildings," said Eric Pool, security engineer for IT Services and Co Race director of the 5K run. "This run means a lot to me, a lot of hard work goes into this race."
