Graduate students in the Master of Sport Administration and Leadership (MSAL) program turned over more than $2700 to the Rotary Boys and Girls Club. The donation represented proceeds from this year's Bring on the Sun 5K Run. More than 180 participated in the run, which took place on May 5 at Magnuson Park.
The race was a component of a new event management class. Students secured sponsorships, organized ad campaigns, coordinated volunteers, and handled all the logistics on race day.
"It was a challenging, yet rewarding experience for students to build a 5k run from start to finish," said Professor Maylon Hanold. "They have also set into motion a lasting tradition that will benefit the youth of Seattle."
The Rotary Boys and Girls Club offers academic support, leadership coaching, athletics, and healthy social learning environments for more than 500 inner-city school-aged children and teenagers in the Central District of Seattle. Students Bill Peck, far left, and Zach Katz Spring, far right, presented the check to Patrick Carter, center, Executive Director of the Rotary Boys and Girls Club.
The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers 33 undergraduate and 7 advanced degrees. The Master of Sport Administration prepares graduate students for careers in the sport industry.
