Come join the annual Hearts on Fire 5K on February 12th! The race will solely feature the USI campus.
This event is one of the three Screaming Eagles Running Series races starting at 8:30 a.m. followed by a Cupid Fun Run* (kids run for ages 0-9 years at a distance of 100 meters) at 9:15 a.m. All kids receive a free medal.
The focus of this series is to increase the health and well-being of the Evansville community while also providing hands-on experience for students at the University of Southern Indiana. Through these three races, USI will join forces with local organizations and businesses to develop partnerships that will potentially boost community participation on the USI campus.
A portion of the proceeds from the Hearts on Fire 5K will be used to offer programming and provide professional development opportunities for student clubs within USI’s Pott College.
