Kevin’s Run for Funds
Saturday, September 17
Stephens Performing Arts Center
Idaho State University is excited to announce a new tradition focused on making college more accessible to students.
Kevin’s Run for Funds is a 5K run/walk event that raises money for student scholarships that began in 2021. We are happy to announce that the 2022 event will be open to all community members in addition to Idaho State university employees. The event will take place on Saturday, September 17, beginning at 8 a.m. at the Stephens Performing Arts Center. All net proceeds will directly go into a permanent scholarship endowment. Registered participants will receive a t-shirt, race bib, and a ticket to the home football game later that day.
Registration for the general public is $35, while registration for employees of the university will remain $25. The registration deadline is Thursday, August 25. Late registrations will be accepted through September 9, but participants who register after August 25 are not guaranteed to receive a t-shirt.
If you live too far outside of the Pocatello area to join us in person on September 17, you can still participate! Virtual participants should register on the same site as Pocatello area participants in order to pay your fee and receive a shirt. Then, simply run or walk a 5K on your own that morning.
President Satterlee issued an additional challenge that for every ISU employee who finishes the race ahead of him, he will personally add another $10 into the scholarship fund. Virtual participants wanting to participate in this challenge should track their time and distance on their own and send a screenshot of it by noon on Sept 17 to email@example.com.
Please review our FAQs and send any additional questions to Allyson Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
