Crusaders for Kids Annual 5K: Nerd Run!

May 3rd at 5:00pm
at the University of Dallas, West Hall

Crusaders for Kids is a club dedicated to kids in hospitals. Usually we go to children's hospitals in DFW and bring pizza, cookies, nail polish, nerf guns, and video games and hang out with the kids. With our fundraising efforts, we'd like to make a more substantial contribution to make a difference in a child's life. Last year, we raised $1000 - help us beat that this year!

COSTS: $10 which is donated directly to Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas.

I am a junior economics major from St. Louis. I truly have a passion for helping others as well as an inner-drive for self-improvement. When Donovan Kelly approached me about participating in the CFK 5k I immediately said "yes"! I lift weights and play some various sports, but running long distances is not my forte. However, I see this race as an avenue for both challenging myself and supporting a worthy cause. Game On!

I'm a freshmen at the University of Dallas. My hometown is either Bronxville, NY or San Diego, CA depending on who I am talking to; I have moved many times. I am undeclared as far as my major but leaning towards philosophy with a minor in art. In all seriousness I plan on being a lawyer. I'm running for CFK because I believe it to be a good cause. I hope that you feel the same way and donate.

One week in November, I made a trip to Jamaica to work with disabled children and adults. Upon returning, I realized very quickly one does not need to travel abroad to make a difference. I am very blessed to have the ability to live a healthy life and participate in activities such as collegiate track and field, Tough Mudders, and other athletic events.
