Fifth annual campus run will honor veterans

Tue, 11/05/2013
LAWRENCE — Calling it “A Run to Remember,” the University of Kansas Collegiate Veterans Association will host its fifth annual Veterans Day Run on Nov. 10.
Runners will honor the sacrifices that military personnel make in the service of their country as well as honor deceased veterans on a route that takes them past many of the most significant war memorials on Mount Oread. The race begins at 9 a.m. at Memorial Stadium, travels through the KU campus, past KU’s memorials and returns to Memorial Stadium. 
“I think many students on campus are familiar with the Campanile and the Memorial Stadium but don’t actually think of them as being war memorials,” says CVA president Liane Larson. “So it’s a big part of having to honor veterans to see the memorials on Veterans Day.”
Proceeds from the run will go toward CVA student initiatives and also support scholarships for disabled veterans and their family members through KU’s Wounded Warrior Fund. Runners can register for the event at kualumni.org/kuvetsrun.
“Anyone can register, even if you can’t make the run,” Larson said. “All proceeds go to these two organizations. It's a great way to show your appreciation to veterans whether you run or not.”
As it did last year, the CVA has partnered with the KU Veterans Alumni Chapter and other student veteran affiliated organizations on campus, including the Reserve Officer Training Corps units, the KU Veterans Services office and the Office of Graduate Military Programs. The group has so far raised nearly $2,000 from local sponsors. 
“It’s probably our largest event of the year,” Larson said. “Hopefully this will be the biggest year that we’ve had so far.”
The KU Collegiate Veterans Association and the KU Veterans Alumni Chapter are nonpartisan groups of military veterans dedicated to supporting fellow veterans, current service members and their families at the University of Kansas.

Boy with autism benefits from KU student’s undergraduate research Two-year-old Mark’s first haircut in a salon was pretty traumatic. He screamed. He cried. His dad had to restrain him – Mark has autism and a haircut wasn’t part of his routine. But there’s a happy ending. The experience led KU senior Kristin Miller to seek an Undergraduate Research Award (see http://bit.ly/1xod9VT) to develop ways for children with developmental disabilities like Mark to learn how to accept routine health care treatment, such as going to the dentist — or even getting a buzz cut. Watch the video to see why it has been especially rewarding for Miller to help children like Mark.
