Methodist University Founders Day 5K/Fun Run

Methodist University Founders Day 5K/Fun Run

Saturday, November 1, 2014

Proceeds benefit the Alumni Scholarship Fund and the Wounded Warrior Project


It’s Founders Day at Methodist November 1, and we’re celebrating with a 5K and Fun Run through our beautiful 625 acre campus!  Your participation in this run will make a meaningful impact on scholarships for Methodist University students and for members of the U.S. Armed Forces who have defended our freedom at great personal cost.  


November 1 is also Homecoming for all Monarch alumni, so wear your Green and Gold! Prizes include gift cards to purchase casual wear and rounds of golf at great courses in the Carolinas, as well as sturdy armbands to hold your cell phones or heart or music devices (with the MU logo on them, of course!).
