5K Run - Walk
The Alumni Council’s 7th Annual 5K Run- Walk attracted more than 540 participants, 50 volunteers and hundreds of supporters, on the morning of May 19, 2012. The number of participants exceeded last year’s figure, and this amazing event continues to grow. The rain missed the event again this year, making conditions perfect for a great race. More importantly, the event contributed over $11,000 to University of Washington Bothell student scholarships. In addition to generating money for scholarships, the race met many other important goals, such as engaging UW Bothell alumni and drawing community members and neighbors to the campus. The winners were Paul Abdalla in the men’s category with a time of 16:42, and Meghan Lyle for the women with a time of 17:38. A special thanks and congratulations to the UW Bothell Alumni Council and volunteers, along with the faculty, students and staff who ran or walked in the event. Thanks also to the event’s many sponsors, without whom the event would not be possible, including Evergreen Health, Cascadia Community College, and M.O.M.S Fine Foods Catering.
