Origin of race

Proceeds from the Cinco-Cinco Run fund the Gil Gutierrez Memorial Scholarship. Gutierrez was the Ombudsman on campus in August of 1993 when he was hit and killed by a drunk driver while out running.

The run was started by a group of friends and colleagues the next May and has supported nearly $30,000 in scholarships for 52 deserving Colorado State University students.

This is a great way to start out your weekend, get in some exercise, and help a good cause. Feel free to invite interested friends and family to join you in a morning of fun on the Colorado State campus.

Volunteers needed

There is always a need for volunteers so if you can spare a couple of hours the morning of Saturday, May 1, please contact Pam McCracken at
