Fun Run Helps Libraries Get Ready for the World

GSS library fundraiser proceeds to support international/intercultural collections

Library materials are crucial to graduate-level study and research, which is why the Graduate Student Senate initiated the “Love Your Libraries” 5k Fun Run. This year marked the 14th anniversary of this important charity race.

The race raised $5,200 for the purchase of library materials. The proceeds will be earmarked for materials that support UT’s Ready for the World international/intercultural initiatives.

The race began at 8:30 am on Saturday, February 25. 133 of 170 runners competed in the 3.1 mile course through the heart of UT’s campus. Overall winners (with times) were Joseph Goetz (16:26), Simon Rea (17:37), and Kyle Saari (18:39) for the men’s and Tere Stouffer (17:57), Anne Victoria (22:14), and Eleanor McDonough (23:08) for the women’s. Masters were Glen Farr and Susan Thompson; grandmasters were Bob Griffith and Cindy Spangler.
