MAHWAH, NJ — The Student Government Association of Ramapo College sponsored the 2016 Run With Color on Sunday, April 17. Proceeds of the event benefited the Annual Fund of the Ramapo College Foundation. The SGA set a goal of raising $5,000—“5K for $5K.” The event was a success, gathering 417 participants and raising just over $9,000 for Ramapo.
“The event was extremely successful in bringing together the various communities that make up Ramapo College,” says Student Governor, Megan Patel ‘17. “Seeing Student Government, Greek Life, Alumni, parents, friends and current students in one place made for an amazing atmosphere on this campus that has positively affected each group in some way.”
Gifts to the Annual Fund are important to Ramapo’s success because they enable the College to meet immediate needs to fund student scholarships, faculty research grants and special campus projects every year.
The 2016 Run With Color featured a 5K run or walk through the College’s beautiful campus, followed by music and refreshments. For event photos, visit Ramapo’s Facebook page.
