This fall, NMC Student Life in partnership with NMC student group Voices, will host a 5K Run/Walk to raise awareness and to help end sexual violence. Sexual violence is a prevalent issue both on and off college campuses, and it is extremely important to raise community awareness in order to create change. 

On October 8, early same-day registration begins at 8:00 a.m. and the 5K will start at 9:00 a.m. Cash and checks made payable to NMC will be accepted on race day. The race will begin and end on College Drive on NMC’s Front Street Campus, in front of the Cedar lot (1701 E. Front Street).

The race entry fee of $10 for NMC students & $15 for faculty, staff, and the general public includes a Walk, Run, Empower 5K t-shirt designed by NMC Voices! Participants can enjoy free food while connecting with many of our student organizations, campus resources, and community collaborators.
