SUNY Cobleskill's Student Veterans Association Comes Out in Full Force for FAM 5K

Written By Editor on 10/1/13 | 10/1/13


The FAM 5K "Fund" Run/Walk brought 650 participants to Cobleskill on Saturday morning to tackle the 3.1 mile long course that stretches from South Grand to MacArthur Avenue to around SUNY Cobleskill's campus and then back again, with all of the proceeds going to one of five local charities on a rotating basis. 

SUNY Cobleskill's Student Veterans Association was out in full force for the event Saturday morning, with the group donning their Team RWB (Red, White and Blue) t-shirt in this photo outside of the Sunshine Fairground's Progressland, with several members participating in the run. Including SVA President Christina Ilowiecki, who finished with a respectable 26:19 overall time and a mile pace of 8:28.

The Student Veterans Association is by far one of the more community active SUNY clubs on campus, with them planning to participate in the Pumpkin Patch's "mud run" this weekend and a campus car wash on Thursday to raise proceeds for community veterans in need as well as other events through out the semester.

Joshua Edmonds (15:03) and Megan Hogan (16:03) were the top finishers in Saturday's FAM 5K, which was first held in 1994 and has continued to grow every year with more funds being raised for various charities in the community.
