Otterbein communication students to host a virtual 5K

Proceeds will go to the Nigel Chatman Student Emergency Fund

Students in the communications department are hosting a virtual 5K from April 7-10 to support pandemic relief for Otterbein students through the Nigel Chatman Student Emergency Fund. 

Cards on the Move is a course project organized by students taking the COMM 2500 course, public relations techniques.

Dan Steinberg, professor of communications, stated some differences in the course this year due to COVID-19.

“In the past, we have staged a rock concert on campus, shown an award-winning documentary, and now, we are hosting a virtual 5K,” Steinberg said. “The pandemic forced us to host a virtual 5K, since we cannot host an actual trail 5K. However, that actually makes it a bit easier on us. There is no course nor time-keeping mechanism to keep track of.”

There has been an Instagram and Facebook page created to promote the event, where updates are posted frequently. 

The students have also posted flyers around campus and Uptown to get the community involved. 

“Our goal is to raise about $3,000 from the 5K,” sophomore public relations major, Alexis Mcneal said. “We are trying to have around 100 students and 50 community members.”

Students can sign up for $10, while community members, staff and faculty can sign up for $20. All proceeds will go to the Nigel Chatman Student Emergency Fund.

The last day to register for Cards on the Move or donate to the event is April 6.
