Cinco de Mayo – Who Do You Run For?   Join members of the campus community as we answer the question, “Who Do You Run For?” The United Way of Southeast Missouri, with the support of local organizations, is hosting a 5k run at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 5, at the  Jackson Civic Center. This 5k is unlike any other as you get to choose the charity your registration dollars support. We hope you will run for the University Student Emergency Fund that provides direct assistance to Southeast students in extreme financial need.

Registration is now open at and is $25 per person. On the day of the event, registration will open at 7:30 a.m. Pets and strollers are welcome on the course. We hope you will join members of the campus community in your Redhawk running gear to support our students.
