Binghamton University to host 5K Run during Homecoming weekend
BINGHAMTON, NY -- The Binghamton University Alumni Association will host the Kristen Faust Inspirational 5K Run and Walk at 11 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 25, as part of the Homecoming 2011 festivities. The event, which is open to the public, will start and finish at the East Gym on campus.
