Annual StMU 5K will set the gold and blue in motion

Participants can run or walk to benefit Holy Rosary Catholic Church

5K and Parents Weekend 2021

The Gold and Blues of St. Mary’s University are ready to put their running or walking shoes on the sidewalk for a good cause, as the annual 5K is scheduled for Saturday, October 22.

Proceeds will benefit the University’s neighbour, Holy Rosary Catholic Church, which is run by Marianist priests. The mission of the church is to improve services in the neighborhoods around the University.

“The annual StMU 5K for the neighborhood continues to show that our students, employees, alumni and friends will come together in support of Holy Rosary Catholic Church and the surrounding neighborhood,” said university president Thomas M. Mengler. , JD. “It doesn’t matter if you run the whole race or take a leisurely walk with your friends because every step taken is a success in our mission.”

The StMU 5K is part of an ongoing effort to improve quality of life through neighborhood revitalization. St. Mary’s strives to be an essential partner in promoting the health and well-being, education and safety of the community near campus.

This year, Sean M. Strater (BBA ’11, MBA’16), president of the St. Mary’s Alumni Association, will serve as the honorary starter for the event.
