An upcoming 5K fundraiser at Clinton Lake will serve as a training ground for a dozen students at the Army’s Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth.
The students — majors in Army, Air Force and Marines, plus an officer from Malawi in West Africa — are scheduled to take part in the Clinton Fire Department Auxiliary’s 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk, set for 9 a.m. Oct. 24 at Bloomington Beach at Clinton Lake.
Aside from an opportunity to compete, the event gives the students an opportunity to interact with participants, supporters, organizers and others in a community outreach capacity.
Students from the college also participated in last year’s event.
Proceeds from the run and fun walk will benefit the fire department. For more information, including how to register, call Dennis Snodgrass at 865-8526.
