HAVERFORD, Pa. – The Sixth Annual Haverford College Joe Schwartz ’83 Memorial 3K Run/Walk will take place on Sunday, April 28. Mark your calendars to take part in this event that seeks to raise health and fitness awareness throughout the Haverford community while supporting Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) research.
This year’s race, beginning at Haverford College’s Founders Green, offers a different course from the past due to the U.S. Open campus agreement, but the challenge remains.
The time has arrived to begin training for this exciting run/walk open to all members of the Haverford College community. A 10-week training contest, aimed at providing structure and incentives, launches on Monday, February 18. Points can be accumulated for any type of exercise, including participation in the Squirrel Boot Camp, held every Tuesday and Thursday at noon in the Gardner Integrated Athletic Center Gymnasium. Keep track of your points on the training contest poster in the Fitness Center and compete against other staff, faculty and students. Individual prizes as well as prizes for teams--composed of faculty, staff, alumni and students--will be awarded on race day.
Any individual looking for assistance in designing an individualized training program is encouraged to contact Cory Walts, Fitness Center Director or Tom Donnelly, men's track & field coach.
