Youngstown State University is hosting an event
and has asked for us to spread the word!
Ryan McNicholas, Fitness & Wellness Coordinator at Youngstown State University's Department of Campus Recreation, provided this information to us:
"On Saturday, April 25, 2015 the Student Recreation Advisory Committee is hosting the "Fourth Annual Endure for the Cure" with all proceeds going to the "National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund".
The Endure for the Cure is a challenge race with obstacles placed throughout a two mile course on the campus of Youngstown State University. The obstacles may include a climbing wall, tire flips, hurdles, and much more.
If you are interested in participating or know someone who is, please see the attached form and flyer. It may also be a great way to get ready for the Police and Fire Games in June. This is a great event for a tremendous cause and we look forward to having you participate."
