The eighth annual Nikki’s Fund 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, Sept. 14 at Prentis Park in Vermillion. Nikki’s Fund and the University of South Dakota along with the communities of Vermillion and Yankton have sponsored this event since 2006 as part of National Suicide Prevention Week activities in September. The 5K raises money for USD students in crisis situations and helps promote suicide prevention awareness throughout the campus community.

Registration forms are available now at the Student Counseling Center, which is located at the Cook House on the USD campus and at the Muenster University Center at USD. Participants can also register online at AllSport Central (www.allsportcentral.com) or complete a form the day of the run at 8 a.m. at Prentis Park. Pre-registration cost is $10 while cost is $15 after Sept. 9. All proceeds go toward Nikki’s Fund to support suicide prevention programs and other mental health needs for USD students.

The 2013 race/walk starts at 9 a.m. at Prentis Park (also the finish site). The route takes runners and walkers on a route through downtown Vermillion. Prizes are awarded to first place finishers in the male and female categories of 15 and under, 16 to 25 years old, 26 to 54 years old, and 55 and over. T-shirts and refreshments will also be provided. For more information about Nikki’s Fund or to make a donation, please call (605) 335-1688.
