As Kansas University’s Homecoming Week counts down to this Saturday’s 6 p.m. football kickoff against Texas A&M;, the KU Alumni Association is sponsoring a number of different activities for students and the public.

Other major events scheduled for the remainder of the week include:

• 2 p.m. Sunday, Kansas Union, Jayhawk Jog 5K Walk/Run. Proceeds benefit the United Way, and sign-up is available at the event or in advance.
