LA GRANDE, Ore. – The Oregon Health & Science University School of Nursing in La Grande and the EOU Wellness Program have combined the 15th Annual Rita Monahan Walk-a-Thon with the 2nd Annual EOU Wellness Fair.
The synergistic event takes place Saturday, May 9 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at EOU’s Dorion Park at the corner of 6th St and H Ave. on campus.
Activities include a 5K walk/run, health-related booths, live music by Sum People, raffle items, health screenings and fitness demonstrations. The event is free and open to the public.
Registration forms for the 5k walk/run are available online, at the Student Health Center, the Health Hut in the Hoke Union Building, and at 9:30 a.m. prior to the event on Saturday.
Rita Monahan was a former associate professor at OHSU who motivated and encouraged her students to excel. In 1999 she lost her battle with colon cancer and selflessly requested that instead of a memorial service, money be donated to a scholarship fund to assist graduating students with paying for their RN licensure examination.
Rita’s husband Greg Monahan, EOU professor emeritus of history, is matching all donations made to the Rita Monahan Scholarship. Contributions are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law and the tax ID number will be mailed to donors from the EOU Foundation office once the donation has been processed.
Donations are accepted online via the EOU Foundation. For more information contact Sharon Hoffnagle, Student Senate faculty representative, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
