About This Activity

2013's INAUGURAL  RUN WAS A HUGE SUCCESS! Thank you for helping us raise over $2,600 for the Landon Hill Study Abroad Scholarship! We are pleased to announce that the 2nd Annual Coffee Buzz 5k will be held on Saturday, April 5th, 2014. Check back for updates on when registration opens, how you can donate or become a sponsor, and other important info!

The Coffee Buzz 5K is a new endeavor International Appalachian (IntAPP) is taking on to help raise money for the Landon Hill Study Abroad Scholarship.

IntAPP works hard to promote mutual respect for different cultures and to engage all students and community members in friendship and learning. The scholarship fund toward which all of our proceeds will go is in memory of one of our most dedicated members, Landon Hill, who died after contracting bacterial meningitis while studying abroad in Spain in the fall of 2011. Landon is a symbol of what our IntApp members strive to be; while at Appalachian he was a leader in improving our organization and encouraged us all to hold ourselves accountable to reach our goals. He consistently reached out to the international students in meaningful ways—a fact made clear by the sheer number of Appalachian’s former international students he was able to visit at their home universities while he was abroad. Along with his passion for an international perspective, Landon truly enjoyed coffee. We thought there could be no better way to raise money for his scholarship than a 5K run and some coffee.
