The 11th annual Fun 5K Walk/Run, sponsored by the Loper Programming and Activities Council, is scheduled for April 13 at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

The event will begin at 9 a.m. at the Cope Memorial Fountain on the UNK campus. A designated route will guide participants around the campus and then back to the finish line at the fountain.

Prizes will be drawn at the end of the event, and in past years have included cruises and other trips. Registration fees will go to the Student Leadership Scholarship fund.

Registration is free for UNK students before April 5 and $10 any time afterward. The non-student fee is $15 before April 5 and $20 afterward. Registration can be completed at or by calling 308-865-8523.

Each participant will receive a race packet that includes a T-shirt that can be picked up in the Nebraskan Student Union Welcome Desk on April 12, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. or the morning of the race at 8 a.m.
