5K Squirrel Fun Run

The 5K Squirrel Fun Run is getting a new location!! Join us on-site at the new AdventHealth Complex for a fun twist on this event that was created to promote the importance of wellness for the whole person.

The Advancement Office at Union College is honored to collaborate with the university's Wellness Committee and the students' Active Minds Club.

The Union College Employee Wellness Committee is committed to helping each person stay active and healthy. We thank the Wellness Committee for the snacks after the Squirrel Fun Run. Also, they will have nursing students available to take blood pressure and check your heart rate.

Active Minds is collaborating with the Squirrel Fun Run in hopes that this event will unite our community and provide space to acknowledge how suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and our loved ones. They invite each runner/walker to select honor beads that they will provide — each color shows our connection to the cause, and helps us identify others who understand our experience.
