May 24, 2019 LA GRANDE, Ore. – Residence Life staff and students at Eastern Oregon University will run through sprinklers, water slides and other summertime obstacles during a 5k fun run in support of cancer research on June 2.
Holly Fosher, an area coordinator for residence life at EOU, said all proceeds from the event will benefit patients in Grande Ronde Hospital’s Hematology and Oncology Clinic.
“The funds will provide comfort items like wigs, blankets and slippers for patients undergoing cancer treatments,” Fosher said.
Unlike other fun run fundraisers, this one sends participants through a series of water features. A series of squirt guns and water balloons greet racers at each turn.
Registration opens at 1 p.m. and the race begins at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 2 in the EOU Quad between Loso Hall and Hoke Union Building. Cost to register is $3 for student and $5 for community members. Raffle tickets will be available for $1 each.
