Did you know that a growing trend among staff in Student Affairs is to commit their time (and bodies) to accomplishing amazing physical feats? And I am not talking about hitting the treadmill every so often. These enthusiasts are literally going the distance - in some cases running over 26 miles! Please give a big round of applause to the following participants. Their accomplishments are truly inspiring.
