The Columbia College Student Government Association (SGA) is sponsoring a 5K run/walk at Stephens Lake Park on Saturday, April 10, 2010 in Columbia, Mo. Each year the SGA selects a local charity to sponsor for the event, and this year they have chosen to sponsor the Dream Factory, a children�s wish-granting organization. The Dream Factory does not limit its mission to children who have life-threatening illness but also provides travel, shopping and celebrity appearances to children with chronic illnesses and disorders or who suffer from substantial emotional and physical pain. The 5K run/walk is part of SGA�s annual spring event. Columbia College students, faculty, staff, alumni, family, friends and the entire Columbia community are invited to register for the event. The registration fee is $10 per person and 100 percent of the money collected will be given to the Dream Factory. There are two ways to register for the event: 1. Online at http://www.columbiacollegesga.org 2. In person the day of the event at Stephens Lake Park. Event registration begins at 9 a.m., the race at 9:30 a.m. The first 150 people to arrive at the event will receive a free wristband. For complete event information, contact Elizabeth Ball, director of student activities, at (573) 875-7403 or eqball@ccis.edu.
