GVSU students and faculty unite to run their first 5K

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – GVSU students have partnered with GVSU faculty to push each other to run in their first 5K! What a cool mission this is. So how does it work?

Each student gets paired with a faculty member. Out of the partnership, either the student has run a 5k or the faculty member has. That way, one person is the mentor and one person is the first-time runner.

There are two training sessions a week, where the group trains together. Check out the video above to see how this partnership and mentorship has impacted both students and faculty.
