School of Business to hold 4th Annual Fit for Business 5K

This is a guest post from the School of Business:

The Wake Forest University School of Business will hold the 4th Annual Fit for Business 5K on April 6.  The run/walk, planned by School of Business students, will be held on campus; the course begins and ends at Farrell Hall.  This year’s race proceeds will benefit Junior Achievement of the Triad.

Junior Achievement of the Triad’s volunteer-delivered, kindergarten through 12th-grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students in our community to dream big and reach their potential. This fall, graduate students in the School of Business were able to experience the impact of Junior Achievement of the Triad first hand as they went into local elementary school classrooms to teach financial literacy.

This event is open to the public, anyone can participate!

Just by signing up, you’ll receive a race packet, which includes a commemorative t-shirt (while supplies last), a chance to win giveaways, and the post-race celebration.  More importantly, by just signing up you are making a positive impact on children and you in our local community!
