You can run, walk, or even sleep in and support the APMA Educational Foundation Student Scholarship Fund Saturday. The seventh annual Team APMA 5K Run/Walk, which raises funds for podiatric medical students, will start at 6 a.m. on the grounds of the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center.
Stop by the APMA Booth (#1027) to sign up for the race. It is open to National attendees and exhibitors, and their family members. Registration is $20 for podiatric medical students and $25 for all others. Those who do not participate in the race can still support the cause by registering as sleepers.
Runners and walkers receive a free ASICS America Corporation shirt. Sleepers receive a complimentary cotton shirt. Registrants also receive a goody bag, including a pair of Spenco Total Support Sandals.
Proceeds from the event support the APMA Educational Foundation Student Scholarship Fund. Scholarships are awarded annually to eligible podiatric medical students in their third or fourth year at the nine accredited podiatric medical colleges.
