All faculty and staff members are invited to show their UP pride and help support Doernbecher Children’s Hospital by joining the University’s Shamrock Run team. The race is on Sunday, March 13, 2016, at Waterfront Park in downtown Portland. Last year the UP race team was the 14th largest in the event, with 108 runners and walkers. The team also raised $540 for programs within the UP community.
This year’s goal is to make the UP Shamrock Run team 250 people strong. As an added bonus, if at least 75 people join the team, the Shamrock Run will donate $5 per person back to support UP programs. Students, employees, alumni, Holy Cross and friends of the UP community are all welcome to join. Sign up soon; registration closes Sunday, January 31.
To join the UP team, register online at this link (choose the “team” option; the UP code is 1070). Team members receive a $4 registration discount. Packet pick-up (race t-shirts, pins, and bibs) will be at the Beauchamp Recreation and Wellness Center the week before the race.
