WellCAT Ambassadors invite you to 'Run Fasta, Eat Pasta' 5K to benefit K-State student food pantry on April 30

Submitted by Jenny Yuen


The WellCAT Ambassadors and Student Dietetics Association of Kansas State University are hosting a 5K and a 1-mile fun run at 10 a.m. Sunday, April 30, at Memorial Stadium.

The Run Fasta, Eat Pasta 5k and Fun Run will benefit the K-State Student Life Food Pantry by asking all participants to bring a nonperishable item or canned good as registration for the race. 

Register for the event online

The first 125 registrants will receive a T-shirt. Registrants can enjoy some pasta and cookies after the event. Special thanks to Hy-Vee, Premier Chiropractic and Wellness, and Mr. Goodcents for donating to this event.

As part of the K-State student body, we understand there are many students who suffer from food insecurity on and off campus. By hosting this 5K and fun run event, the WellCAT Ambassadors and members of Student Dietetics Association want to show support to the university's newly placed food pantry by increasing awareness about food insecurity among students while helping to add to the food pantry's supply.

This event is a true reflection of our organization's mission: to provide campus leadership by serving as positive role models, and to aid students in making healthy decisions to be successful while in college. We hope you can come join us!
