The Final Countdown

Hey there Gophers - we're less than a month away from Homecoming! Can you believe it? After months of planning everything is finally coming together, and there's plenty of opportunities to be excited about!

1. The Norman Borlaug Food and Hunger 5k
For the first time ever, the 5k will take place on the St. Paul campus! This unique route provides runners with a scenic, rural run through a big city. Best of all? Participants get to fuel up after the run with post-race food and entertainment. A Gopher's gotta eat, right? Click here to register.

2. The Norman Borlaug Food and Hunger Drive
Not only will this year's 5k honor U of M Alumni, Norman Borlaug, but the Food Drive will do so as well! Support Hunger Relief in the Twin Cities by donating nonperishable food items. Items will be collected at the 5k, as well as online at Second Harvest Heartland.

3. Blood Drive
Last but not least is the Red Cross Blood Drive. Sign up to donate blood and give back to the community by clicking here and entering the sponsor code: gophers. Doesn't it feel good to be Minnesota nice? You betcha!

That's all for now. Check back soon for more updates from Homecoming Headquarters!
