Truman State sorority holds 5k run/walk and 1 mile fun run for ANAD

One Truman State University sorority is holding a race for a good cause.

Delta Phi Epsilon is hosting their second annual 5k walk/run and 1 mile fun run this weekend.

All proceeds from the event will go to the organization's philanthropy ANAD, which stands for the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders.

This event is open to the public and anybody is welcome to attend.

Programming Vice President Madeline Hessling told KTVO why this is so important.

"This is really important because this is something that most people don't talk about or don't really acknowledge," Hessling said. "We are doing it at the Primary School and it really does affect everyone. Everyone has that body-issue that's close to our hearts, so it's really important for us to talk about it. The 5K is really special to us because it supports eating right, exercising and being more confident."

The run will start Saturday, Nov. 4, at Kirksville Primary School.

Sign up time will be at 8:00 a.m.

The 5k starts at 9:00 a.m.

The fun run begins at 10:30 a.m.
