Students from Widener University’s Institute for Physical Therapy Education have organized a 5K colorful run on Friday, April 10 at 4 p.m. to benefit the Chester Community Physical Therapy Clinic. The student-run clinic aims to improve healthcare access to physical therapy services by providing pro bono care to underserved and uninsured individuals in Chester and surrounding communities.
Pre-race festivities begin at 3 p.m. on Widener’s Memorial Field behind Old Main with lawn games, music and a warm-up led by the Widener Wellness Center staff. Participants are encouraged to register at this time prior to the 4 p.m. race start. All who register will receive a t-shirt, sunglasses and a beverage voucher for use at Maggie May’s Campus Pub after the race.
