The University of Nebraska at Kearney’s 3rd Annual FUN 5K Walk/Run has raised more than $2,000 for the Student Leadership Scholarship Fund.

“The new race route on campus seemed to be a hit, and we look forward to next year, as we plan to improve the end of the route even more,” said Jami Schaffnitt, coordinator of student activities at UNK.
