By now, you may have heard that SPS is a sponsor for the upcoming WCS Run for the Wild, to be held on Sunday, October 9th, 2011 at the New York Aquarium in Coney Island, Brooklyn.  We’re hoping to build a good-sized team of students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of SPS to participate in this 5K event, and build some great SPS spirit!

Participants can choose to run or walk at this event, which makes it accessible to a pretty wide audience, plus all participants get free admission the day of the event to the New York Aquarium.  If you’re interested in joining the SPS team, either as a runner or a walker, you can sign up at Make sure you join the CUNY School of Professional Studies team, and use the promo code RFTWCUNY to get $5 off your registration.

I’m choosing to run at this event, and will be blogging over the next few weeks about what I’m doing to prepare and how our team is shaping up as well as sharing behind the scenes details about the event itself.  I hope you’ll follow along and join us on October 9th for a fantastic day at the New York Aquarium!

Heather Zeman is the Events Manager at the CUNY School of Professional Studies, where she coordinates a wide variety of recruitment and special events. She’s currently planning a gorilla trek, to take place in Summer 2012.
