Campus News | Tuesday, May 7, 2019
The 8th annual Cougar 5K Challenge is history. It was held on Saturday, May 4, 2019, on the Columbus State Delaware Campus.
The event began in 2012 as a way to generate book scholarship money for students. One hundred percent of proceeds fund those scholarships. The totals this year are impressive: $8,500 from race registrations and $4,654 from individual donations. That’s a grand total of $13,154!
Collectively, over the eight years, the Cougar 5K Challenge has generated more than $35,000 for this meaningful cause.
The winner was Keith Kuisick of Columbus, who finished with a time of 19:58.3. The top female runner was Courtney Pugno of Delaware with a time of 24:28.9.
