Students, faculty and community members all laced up their running shoes in preparation for Saturday’s Laps with the Chaps 5K Run.
The course consisted of running a lap around the track and then proceeded to lead runners under the Health and Science Center bridge, through campus parking lots, passing the baseball and softball fields until loop- ing back around to the finish line on the track.
The winning runner was DuPage resident Andy Enright, whose winning time of 17:16 was enough to give him the best time on the day.
After the race, a med- al ceremony was held to congratulate runners with the top times.
The race had an im- pressive turnout and brought out more than 150 participants consist- ing of several students from the college, com- munity members and employees of the college.
Amongst these students
was Student Leadership Council Outreach Co- ordinator Jenna Hola- kovsky who ran in order to promote awareness about her club, Students for Animal Defense.
Even numerous nurs- ing students showed up for the race, sporting fake injuries and even carrying around an IV.
The fundraiser success- fully brought out several people and raised money foradditional scholar- ships for potential and current students looking to attend the college.
