5K Run to honor Binghamton University graduate
The Binghamton University Alumni Association will hold the Kristen Faust Inspirational 5K Run at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, October 19, as part of Homecoming 2008. The event, which is open to the public, will start and finish at the East Gym located on the University campus.
The race is in memory of Kristen Faust, a Class of 2000 graduate who died unexpectedly in 2006. Faust was a two-sport athlete at Binghamton, where she earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees, and worked as a senior counselor. At the time of her death, she was training for a marathon in memory of her father.
Proceeds will benefit the Kristen Faust Memorial Fund, which provides a scholarship to a Binghamton University senior who expresses a strong commitment to social work and counseling. The entry fee is $20 for those who pre-register and $30 on the day of the event. Those who register by September 30 will receive a Faust 5K T-shirt.
