Prizes were awarded for the top female and male runners as well as the “best undressed.” In addition, each runner received a coupon for The Running Spot.
Proceeds of the event benefited STYUKA, a student-run fundraising committee that plans and hosts events throughout the academic year. All of the proceeds from the events are given to a charitable organization selected by the committee.
This year proceeds from STYUKA went toward the Tom Geiger Guest House. The organization serves homeless women with disabilities and their children in the Greater Cincinnati area. It is renovating the former Assumption Church Elementary School gymnasium into 12, two-bedroom apartments, which will be in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. STYUKA has pledged to provide the paint and carpeting, as well as some furnishings, for the apartments.
