The K-State Alumni Association invites Kansas State University students, alumni, friends and community members to kick off K-State's 2016 Homecoming Week by participating in the annual homecoming philanthropy 5K Run/Walk on Oct. 16.

This year's homecoming theme is "Growing up Purple" and marks K-State's 101st homecoming celebration. Homecoming is a universitywide celebration coordinated by the K-State Alumni Association and sponsored by AT&T.

Registration for the 5K, which benefits USO Fort Riley, is open and can be completed online or via mail. The annual 5K has raised more than $68,000 for community organizations since it began in 2003. For registrations submitted online or postmarked by Oct. 6, the cost for K-State students or K-State Alumni Association members is $17 and $20 for nonmember or nonstudents. For all registrations submitted or postmarked after Oct. 6, the cost is $25. To register online, visit K-State.com/5k.

The 5K course begins and ends at the K-State Alumni Center, located at the corner of 17th Street and Anderson Avenue, and travels through the K-State campus.
