Steve Ellis Memorial Scholarship Run - Save the Date

Save the date for the Steve Ellis Memorial Scholarship Run, which will be held on Saturday, May 21st 2011.

Steve, a senior writer for the Tallahassee Democrat and Pi Kappa Alpha alumnus, died in November 2009. His wife Alpha Chi Omega Karen (Beta Eta, FSU) and his friends at the paper have joined together to honor his memory with a scholarship in his name at FSU. It will help deserving students studying sports journalism.

The run will be held on campus the weekend of the FSU-Clemson (Steve's alma mater) baseball series. Please mark your calendars and plan to run, walk or volunteer at the event!

Turkey Trot - Run, Volunteer, Make a Difference for DVA

What could be more meaningful on Thanksgiving than incorporating family and helping others?

Fulfill that urge by running or walking in the 35th Annual
Turkey Trot. Want to help "behind the scences"? They need volunteers also.

From the
Gulf Winds Track Club website:
Since 2001 the main beneficiary of Turkey Trot proceeds has been the Refuge House. More than $70,000 has been raised for the Refuge House since that time. The mission of Refuge House is to provide direct services to battered women, their children and sexual assault survivors, as well as to work to eliminate the conditions in society that allow such violence to continue.

Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 2010
