The UMD Honors College Student Programming Council is hosting a Terp Trot: 5K for DNA to raise awareness and funds for Genetic Alliance, an organization heavily involved with genetic disorders and health advocacy. Supporting the efforts of Genetic Alliance which are at the forefront of health advocacy in the 21st century allows us to just start getting involved with today's issues and tomorrow's solutions. Our DNA may vary from person to person, but our will and desire to help and lend our voices to others remains the same. And with Thanksgiving being prime time for community outreach (not that there's ever a bad time to give back), SPC wanted to harness the unstoppable Terp spirit towards a good cause while also bringing members of our community together. What better way than our take on a Turkey Trot? Because we all know that terrapins can take turkeys any day! From this event, SPC ultimately hopes that the UMD community finishes the 5K for DNA with a heightened awareness of genetic disorders as well as a heightened campus unity. SPC. DOIN' BIG THINGS ON A MOLECULAR LEVEL. DO THEM WITH US!
