About This Activity

Marshall University Medlife is a student-run organization focused on spreading the MEDLIFE mission (medicine, education and development) to our community and around the world. We do this by participating in community outreach activities and by attending mobile clinics, week-long volunteer trips to remote areas in developing countries.

Marshall MedLife's first 5k is a race that will benefit two different organizations, MedLife and Lily's Place. Half of the proceeds will go towards the MEDLIFE Project Fund which will be used to sponsor the project “A house for Soledad”. Soledad was forced into motherhood when she was raped at a young age. She currently lives in a torn down shack in Lima, Peru, that does not sustain environmental conditions. She works seven days a week to provide for her family, and we would like to help her build a home. Here is a link to Soledad's story:

The other half of the proceeds will go towards a local facility called Lily's Place. Lily's Place provides behavioral health to infants suffering from prenatal drug exposure. You can read more about Lily's Place at
