Second Annual First Peoples 5k Run
Show your support for First Peoples at Evergreen!
Saturday, May 23, 2015 at 9:30am at the CRC Amphitheater (details TBA)
Despite ongoing efforts to reduce health disparities in the United States, racial and ethnic disparities in both health and health care persist. Even when income, health insurance and access to care are accounted for, disparities remain (source:ncsl.org).
First Peoples Multicultural Advising Services is sponsoring this 5k race to promote healthy lifestyles for People of Color in the face of diseases that disproportionately affect their communities, and to promote health among all students and community members. All members of the community are invited to participate.
Proceeds from the 5k will go toward our annual First Peoples Graduation Ceremony, which celebrates the contributions and accomplishments of Evergreen's Students of Color.
