Students in this fall semester's Event Planning and Publicity class planned and organized Stevenson University's first Color Run with proceeds to benefit Baltimore' House of Ruth. The students had to find food vendors, solicit participants, plan and sign the course, collect prizes, and ask for volunteers along with creating awareness around campus for the event.
The House of Ruth is a home for women and children who have been abused and need a safe place to stay. Through the registration fees and donations, the class raised over $600. A representative from the House of Ruth was on hand at the race to accept the donation.
