PRLog - April 26, 2014 - ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Hamline Cares is hosting the “Stars and Stripes 5k” in support of the Minnesota Disabled American Veterans (DAV).

It is our goal to reach 150 registered participants and to raise $2000 in proceeds for the DAV.
Hamline Cares - Hamline University, Saint Paul, Minn.
Hamline Cares is a student organization founded by the students in Professor Andrews’ Foundations of Management class at Hamline University. Each year, students are responsible for planning and implementing a Service Learning Project within one semester, to raise money for a local non-profit organization.
Registration and check-in begins at 8:00 am. The 5k begins at 9:00 am. At roughly 3.1 miles around Lake Phalen, it takes just under an hour to walk. Pre-registration is $20 and $25 on race day. No registration is required for children 10 and under. A $5 off discount applies to teams and families of four or more who register at the same time, or students. Parking is provided at 1600 Phalen Drive, Saint Paul 55106
Lunch and refreshments will be available for purchase after the race; however, water stations and post-race snacks will be provided by local businesses. Local businesses have also donated door prizes for participants to win. Door prize tickets are available for a suggested donation. Veterans and active duty military members will be provided an extra door prize ticket. Look for updates about new prizes and sponsorships when you “like” us on Facebook at “Hamline Cares.”
All proceeds go to the DAV. Checks can be made payable to Hamline University. A donation receipt will be provided. For more information about getting a registration packet or about making a donation, please email: hamlinecares@
