Description

Rock Valley College's 5th Annual Golden Futures 5K run/ 1 mile walk will be held on Saturday, October 5, 2018, on RVC’s main campus.

Our USATF certified course will take you all through our beautiful campus! You'll run right by our state-of-the-art Health Sciences Center and math and science building, and our one-of-a-kind architectural marvel- the Bengt Sjostrom Starlight Theatre. Enjoy the sites along the way, including campus wildlife, stunning landscaping, and a peaceful creek complete with water fountains!

There will also be a free kids "Fun Run" with RVC's mascot, Arvee! Pre-registration for the “Fun Run” is not necessary. Just come to the registration tables on event day to get a “Fun Run” race bin for your child. The “Fun Run” will begin at approximately 8:45 a.m.

All proceeds from the run/walk will go toward the Rock Valley College Foundation general scholarship fund. So by participating you truly will be providing a "golden future" for many students in our community. In our first four years we have raised over $14,000 for the Golden Futures Scholarship.
