Fun Run - Celebrating 28 years!
The 28th Annual Faculty of Applied Health Sciences (AHS) Fun Run was a great success!
A record number of just over 350 alumni, students, faculty, staff and members of the greater community took part in this year's Fun Run. It was a beautiful day for a run! Expert bib tag timing was provided to participants in the 5km race, but the fun aspect of this annual event was still evident in the crazy costumes, face painting and balloon animals.
Susan Elliott, Dean of Applied Health Sciences, welcomed all the participants and ran in her fourth Fun Run. Waterloo’s Director of Athletics and AHS alum Bob Copeland (BA '89, MA '91) was our very special Grand Marshal, wishing the runners good luck and starting the race.
Runners and those cheering them on were entertained by The Water Boys, Waterloo's male a cappella ensemble and AHS alum Dave Partridge known as DJ Furious George kept everyone moving to the music. Kinesiology alum Danielle VanDyk (BSc '08) led everyone through warm-ups, accompanied by our own AHSUM student society executive. Kim Rau and Associates and SOS Physiotheraphy and their team provided much appreciated post-race treatment.
Be sure to join us again next year on Saturday, September 27, 2014!
