For the second year, NNU’s Psychology Club (Psi Chi) is partnering with the Nampa Family Justice Center (NFJC) to host the Homecoming Centennial 5K Finale on Sat., Nov. 9 at 2:30 p.m. As a continuation of last year, the event features a one-mile walk and 2.5-mile run that will start and finish in front of the NNU Johnson Sports Center, 313 E. Dewey St., Nampa.

NNU and Psi Chi hope to raise awareness for the NFJC, a partnership of agencies dedicated to ending family violence and sexual assault through prevention and response by providing comprehensive, client-centered services in a single location. Last year’s kickoff event encouraged $664 in donations, with $260 and all donated baby items given to the NFJC. Donations also supplemented seven NNU scholarships.

Participants may register online at nnu.edu/homecoming for $15; student price is $10. By registering, runners and walkers support the NFJC, and those registered by Nov. 1 will receive a commemorative t-shirt. Registrants will also be eligible for prizes during the event. Baby items and donations received will again be given to the NFJC.

The Homecoming Centennial 5K Finale is held in conjunction with a 100-mile ultra marathon, also hosted by NNU during Homecoming & Family Weekend 2013. For more information on the ultra marathon, please visit nnu.edu/100miles.
