Color run against cancer

ZTA to host color run and walk 5k

Zeta Tau Alpha’s (ZTA) Ferris State University Zeta Omega chapter is hosting a fundraiser 5K color run and walk in support of breast cancer education and awareness.

The Breast Friends Color Run/Walk 5K takes place Saturday, Oct. 15, at 10 a.m., starting at Northend Riverside Park on Trestle Bend Drive in Big Rapids. On-site registration starts at 9 a.m.

“This is our first year hosting a color run,” said Ferris nursing junior Nicole Matzke. “We’re trying to do something big to bring in more people and something fun to the community.”

Pre-registration ended on Saturday, Oct. 1. However, registration can be completed all the way up until the day of the race. Registration is $25 and all proceeds go to ZTA, and it will distribute the funds to their partners: the National Football League (NFL) and the American Cancer Society (ACS).
