About This Activity

JSU Freshman Forum is proud to announce the inaugural “Light up a Life 5k Fun Run”. The fun run will take place on April 15, 2016 and will raise money and awareness for suicide prevention. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among college aged students. Freshman Forum is taking steps to end suicide by bringing light to this difficult topic and making students aware of the services offered on and around our campus. The cost of the run is $20.00 before April 1, 2016 and $25.00 after April 1, 2016. All participants registered before April 1 are guaranteed a  t-shirt on the day of the run!
