VIRTUAL 5K

Description

The True Blue 5K is all about showing your TRUE BLUE pride!  Traditionally held during homecoming, this year due to the current pandemic we have decided to go VIRTUAL!  This is the perfect opportunity to experience the fun kickoff to homecoming weekend wherever you are and get an awesome GEORGIA SOUTHERN TRUE BLUE 5K shirt in the mail via USPS!

The 2020 race is sponsored by The Abbie DeLoach Foundation. 

While at GSU, Abbie joined the Kappa Delta Sorority, a legacy she shared with her mother. Her leadership skills shined amongst this lovely group of women as she was the Recommendation Chairman, a member of the homecoming step team, she played many intramural sports, and was on the championship intramural basketball team for Kappa Delta. She was a Junior in the Nursing program when her and 4 fellow nursing students were killed on their way to their last clinical rotation in Savannah. We hope you will join us in honoring Abbie’s legacy at the True Blue 5K.
