IPED/Economics 5K

By: Sarah Garwood

Congratulations to all the 5k participants!

This weekend, we hosted our first ever IPED/Economics 5K run! Students, faculty and members of the community participated. IPED student, James Duke, came in first place followed by Alumni Dissertation Fellow Katie Jajtner.

  

 

After the race, runners, race marshals, and spectators joined together for a brunch and raffle. Prizes were donated by local restaurants and businesses in the area including: Marie’s Roasted Coffee Beans and Gifts, Cerini Coffee and Gifts, Randazzo’s Seafood, Zero OHO Nove, San Gennaro Restaurant, Robert’ Restaurant, and Enzo’s of Arthur Ave. One lucky winner also received an IPED Loot Bag featuring the new IPED wine glass and coveted IPED coffee mug. Congratulations to our winners across both the Departments of Economics and IPED: Greg Fischer, Amr Yawer, Anjali Chandra, Sarah Garwood, Tess Hart, and Moses Cam! Together, we raised $381 for Hurricane Harvey relief.

Our gold and silver medalists!
