Three Rivers College will hold its first “Raider Run, Walk & Wag” 5K run/walk fundraiser on Saturday, July 8 at 8 a.m. at the East Park in Dexter. Early registration for the event ends June 14.
The run/walk will be pet friendly – although not required, participants are encouraged to bring their four-legged friends with them. Strollers are also welcome, and “virtual runners” are able to participate apart from the event. Proceeds from the event will go to benefit students at Three Rivers – Dexter.
“Three Rivers isn’t just Poplar Bluff. Three Rivers is all of our 15-county service area, and it’s important for us to hold events in all of our communities, to benefit those communities,” said Michelle Reynolds, Director of Development at Three Rivers College. “With the Raider Run, Walk & Wag, you can not only have a great day in the park with your pets, but you can also help students right there in your town.”
Entry for an individual run is $20 June 14, with a guaranteed t-shirt for early registrants. Non-runners interested in supporting the event may register as a “virtual runner” for $20 and receive a t-shirt. Late and same-day registration begins at 8 a.m. in the East Park in Dexter, and is $25 per participant. T-shirts for late and same-day registrants are on a first-come, first-served basis, as supplies last. Pets must be leashed, with no pit bulls allowed by city ordinance.
Three Rivers will also hold an On-The-Spot Enrollment Rush during the Run, Walk & Wag event. Staff from Three Rivers – Dexter will be on hand to give information about degree, certificate, and transfer programs at Three Rivers – Dexter. Interested students will be able to apply for admission to Three Rivers at the event.
