All UP community members can show their UP pride and help support Doernbecher Children’s Hospital by joining the UP Shamrock Run team, according to Liz Winters, recreational services. The race is Sunday, March 19, 2017, at Waterfront Park in downtown Portland. Last year the University of Portland team was the fourth largest locally and had 147 runners and walkers. We also raised more than $700 for programs within the UP community.
This year the goal is to make UP’s Shamrock Run team 250 people strong. As an added bonus, if there are at least 75 members on the team, the Shamrock Run will donate $5 per person back to support programs at UP. Students, employees, alumni, Holy Cross, and friends of the UP community are all welcome to join. Sign-up soon, as registration closes Tuesday, January 31.
To join the UP team, you must register online at this link (choose the “team” option; the UP Team Code is 1070). Team members receive a $4 registration discount. Packet pick-up (race t-shirts, pins, and bibs) will be at the Beauchamp Center the week before the race.
