About This Activity

This is a timed 5k walk/run on the Keystone Trail that starts and ends at Nebraska Furniture Mart. All participants will receive a t-shirt and race bib with a coupon to be used in store. Packet pick up will be Friday, September 25th from 10am to 4pm and Saturday, September 26th from 10am to 1pm in the Appliance and Electronics Store in the Event Center (Center Stage).  Awards will be given to the top 3 finishers in several different age categories.

All proceeds will be donated to TeamMates Mentoring Program so we'll be "Tailgating for TeamMates." Wear your favorite football, cheerleader or fan apparel and help us raise money for this awesome cause. The goal of the TeamMates program is to see youth graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education. To reach this goal, youth meet one hour per week with a caring adult who serves as a mentor. Mentors are volunteers from the community who have dedicated themselves to making a difference in the life of a young person. Mentors give youth a sense of hope, purpose and vision. The TeamMates Mentoring Program currently provides a mentor for over 7,500 youth across Nebraska and Iowa.

Tony Veland from the 1994 and 1995 Championship Husker teams will be hosting, so come on out - it's going to be a great time!
