Marymount 5K part of Day of Remembrance

The Marymount 5K is part of the university’s annual Remembrance Day, which began in 2006 when several classmates of Tara Howard gathered for a service project in her memory. Howard, known for her work with the homeless, the elderly and abused women, died in a car accident her freshman year. The day includes reflections for all deceased members of the Marymount community.

The race is April 22, and runners will have opportunities to participate in a wide range of service projects from planting vegetables in a community garden to packing lunches for A-SPAN, a program working to end homelessness in Arlington.

The event is co-hosted by MU’s Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, Marymount’s Wellness Committee and the Student Government Association. Proceeds will go toward the PT Department’s annual service-learning trip to Costa Rica and the Foundation for Physical Therapy.
