Due to overwhelming participation by our members, we are proud to bring back the second annual NACAC National Conference Start of the Day 5K Run/Walk presented by Olympian Level Sponsor: Campus Explorer!!
This year, the “Start of the Day” event will take place on Friday, September 20th, at 6:30 A.M. NACAC members will have the opportunity to join their friends and colleagues, as well as local competitors, for what is sure to be a fun event you won't want to miss - the perfect way to jump start your Friday morning - while also experiencing the beauty of the downtown Toronto waterfront! Designed to encourage camaraderie and friendly competition, registrants can choose to run or walk and can participate as an individual or as a member of a team. Strollers, pets and iPod use are also welcome. Following completion of the race, participants and spectators will also be rewarded with various post-race awards and festivities including food and beverages.
Registration for this event benefits the NACAC Imagine Fund. Each year the NACAC awards grants from this fund to college counseling professionals so they participate in professional development programming or implementation of special projects designed to assist them in most effectively guiding their students through the transition process from high school to post-secondary education.
Both participants and non-participants will also have the opportunity to raise additional support for the Imagine Fund through the fundraising feature. Click the Fundraising button on the right-hand side of this page to be directed to our 5K fundraising site to contribute a flat donation through the Donate Now feature. Share this link with colleagues, friends and family so they too can contribute to your 5K fundraising efforts!
