The fundraiser occurs midway through that evening's Homecoming schedule, which includes a bonfire at 8 p.m. near Dauphin Hall and a 9 p.m. race warmup by the Penn College Physical Fitness Specialist Club. At 9:45 p.m., speakers Julie H. Carr, of Souderton, a nursing major and founder of the college's Running Without ED student chapter, and Karen L. Martin, an associate professor of medical-surgical nursing, will discuss the mental health issues surrounding eating disorders. Yoga will follow at 10 p.m., led by Clayton A. King, a part-time faculty member in fitness/lifetime sports.
