Students in field

A campus-wide invitation to let your light shine bright this Saturday

September 11, 2017

Finlandia Wellness Committee is excited to announce the first campus community event of the 2017-18 academic year!

Finlandia University employees and students are invited to join Team FinnU at Light the Night Fun Run/Walk, a fun 5k and family-friendly 1k event in Laurium. The event is held at 7 p.m. on Saturday, September 16.

The Wellness Committee has worked out a deal for all Finlandia Students to receive a discount. Free glow sticks and washable color blast powder will be handed out before the event begins. Get creative with your clothing – the brighter the better!

All Finlandia employees and their families can register for the price of $15 with the additional $5 for the shirt as well. All proceeds from this event go towards 31 Backpacks, Inc., a generous organization that provides our local youth with necessary school supplies.

To register for Finlandia’s team, email bridget.durocher@finlandia.edu or stop by the office of Assistant Athletic Director Bridget Durocher, Office #23 in the Paavo Nurmi Center. There will be a 15-passenger van available to transport students or employees who need a ride. The van will meet in front of Finlandia Hall at 6:30 p.m. and arrive in Laurium about 6:50 p.m. to allow you to get your glow on.

The Wellness Committee is represented by faculty and staff from all over campus. If you are interested in joining our committee as a committee member or student representative (open to upper level students in good academic standing), please reach out to Bridget. You can email bridget.durocher@finlandia.edu or call (906) 487-7264.
