2018 marks the beginning of Gaither’s annual 5K December Dash. The event is being sponsored by the Future Medical Professionals (FMP) club, and invites participants to walk or run five kilometers to support the club.

Debbie Hirth, FMP club sponsor and an anatomy and physiology teacher at Gaither, is an advocate for a healthy lifestyle and wanted to incorporate fitness into the club’s fundraising activities.

“I started this 5k to help raise money for the club, and since we are a medical club I wanted to do something that will help students be more physically active outside of their sports. I also wanted to create an annual event for the school.”

FMP encourages students to participate in the event and hopes to see as many students and faculty members as possible. If you aren’t the fastest runner, no problem. Walk or run-you’ll still have fun.

The event will be held on campus Saturday, Dec. 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. For students looking to participate in the 5K, tickets are sold during all lunches, with prices starting at only $10. For more details find an FMP member or see Hirth in room 222.
