The Alumni Association of Valencia College will hold the “Walk and Roll” 5k race at Valencia’s West Campus on Sat., March 31.

Walkers, runners, joggers, elderly, children and those who are handicapped can participate in the race.Early registration for this event ended March 24. Registration rate on the day of the event is $30 for everyone. The Association is only accepting cash or checks, no credit cards allowed. Registration will start at 5 p.m. in building 11, room 106. The race will start at 6 p.m. All proceeds will go towards raising funds and assistance for scholarships dedicated to those students with the need to attend college.“Walks are always fun,” said Valencia business major student, Alisala Dwyer, “I like the idea of being able to not have to do something competitive. Being able to walk and have fun is better because it is more appealing and less frightening to people and will make people want to come out.”The “Walk and Roll” will not only have a 5k race, but refreshments, food, and arts and crafts for children will be provided.All participants will receive a 5k t-shirt as well as awards for those placing in different divisions during the race.
