In the News
We are so excited to announce that Big Brothers Big Sisters of
Metropolitan Chicago has been selected as the official charity
partner for this year’s Northwestern
Athletics Run for Walk on Sunday, July 31, 2016. Registration
is now open for the Run for Walk, a 4.1 mile run and 5K family
walk, to honor former head football coach Randy Walker. The race will once
again finish on Ryan Field and has been named by the Chicago Area Runner's
Association as a CARA Runners' Choice Circuit event for 2016.
For the past seven years -- the last four as the Run for Walk
-- Northwestern fans, supporters and friends of the late Walker have assembled
to honor him by taking part in one of his favorite hobbies -- walking around
Evanston and the NU campus with his wife, Tammy, and their dog, Magic. This
year, the 5K family walk will continue and join the 4.1 mile run through
Evanston's tree-lined streets before participants will finish on Ryan Field
while watching their achievement on the video board. The unique run distance harkens
back to Randy's uniform number 41 during his collegiate playing days at Miami
If you would like to register and participate in the walk or
run, you can use the code BBBSRFW
for a discounted entry. Register HERE. The registration fee for either the run or walk is $37.50 regular price and
includes a short-sleeved technical shirt, a ticket to a non-conference home
football game and entry into the race day expo. The registration fee will
increase to $40 after July 1st.
