Take a step toward better health: Come to our ’Hope Hustle 5K and Fun Run’ on Saturday, Nov. 10, on our campus

Friday, November 2, 2012

Wouldn’t it be great to walk, run, or ramble down paths winding through the East Texas Piney Woods on a beautiful fall day?

You’ll have an opportunity to do just that at the free “First Annual Hope Hustle 5K and Fun Run” to be held Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012, on the campus of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler, located at the corner of U.S. 271 and Texas Highway 155.

The 5K begins at 8 a.m. and the one mile walk or run begins at 8:30 a.m. Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

There is no cost to enter the race, but registration is required. You may pre-register at http://www.uthct.edu/5k/. Registration is also available on-site before the 5K and fun run begin.
