Shippensburg University PRSSA to host 'KupKakes for Kris' 5K walk/run


Shippensburg University’s Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) will be hosting a 5K walk/run on Sunday, April 14, for Kupkakes for Kris.

Kupkakes for Kris is an organization founded to provide financial support for families impacted by the cost of cancer treatments and related personal expenses.

The organization started when Kris Green, an active member of Central Pennsylvania public relations community, was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer in which she fought the battle, but passed away on Oct. 5, 2010.

Her legacy lives on and that is just what Shippensburg PRSSA intends to help continue.
The Messiah College PRSSA chapter raises money for this organization as well but SU intends to make it a yearly event.

The walk/run will start at the pavilion by the hockey rink and will go on a local designated route beginning at 9 a.m.

Prizes to local restaurants will be given out and there will be a live band. Early bird rate is $15 registration without a shirt, or $20 registration and a shirt.

After April 4, registration will be $20 without a shirt or $25 with a shirt. Checks should be made out to “Ship Partners” and can be dropped off at Rowland Hall Room 125.

PRSSA will be handing out registration forms in front of the library on March 25 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
