USD medical students organize Run for Your Life
Last year, 150 people participated and more than $4,000 was raised for the Vermillion and Clay County Emergency Medical Services. This year, proceeds from the event will benefit the Domestic Violence Safe Options Services in Vermillion. The organization provides a range of services for victims of domestic violence, including housing, transportation, medical care, law enforcement advocacy, a crisis hotline and support group activities.
Registration is $15 before March 15 and $20 after, including the day of the run/walk which begins at 9 a.m. at the Lee Med Building in Vermillion. Runners begin at 10 a.m. and walkers begin shortly thereafter. More information is available online at www.runforyourlifeusd.org.
The event is sponsored by the Student American Medical Association and the South Dakota State Medical Association.
