Beautiful weather and sunshine were “on our side”, race participants “exercised their bengal spirit”, and our friendly volunteers did an outstanding job! Steve Barber, '97, News Reporter for WKBW-Channel 7 "fired the starter gun" and ran the race (a “first” for this event!) and Chris Parker, '94, Co-host of the afternoon show on WGR 550-AM sports radio, served as our master of ceremonies for the Post-Race Bengal Brunch.
Thanks to the RECORD number of campus community members (faculty, staff, students, alumni and emeriti) who supported this race as a runner, walker or volunteer! We had 18 student organizations come out on race day, some friendly competition amongst three faculty/staff teams, and five alumni chapters represented. It was wonderful to see so many “bengals” showing their support for this worthwhile cause. Your participation really made a difference and helped make this year’s Bengal 5K the most successful one yet!!
