All faculty and staff are invited to show their UP pride and help out a great cause by joining the University’s Shamrock Run team. The run/walk takes place on Sunday, March 16, 2014, at Waterfront Park in downtown Portland. Those who join the team will get some great UP gear and will be able to pick up their race packets with official race shirt, race bib, and UP gear, on campus a week before the race.
Registration information for the Shamrock Run can be found here (choose the “team” option; the UP team code is 1070). Race registration closes on Wednesday, January 22.
Last year, the UP team was the 8th largest at the Shamrock Run, consisting of 157 runners and walkers. Because of the great turnout, we were able to raise $785 for the Bill Reed Scholarship Fund. This year, if we have at least 75 members on the UP team, Shamrock Run will donate $5 per person to the University’s Recreation and Wellness Center, which will break ground in May 2014. More information can be found here. Questions? Feel free to contact Amy Shelly (firstname.lastname@example.org), Roya Ghorbani-Elizeh (email@example.com), or Bridget Bimrose (firstname.lastname@example.org) in marketing and communications.
