LU Hosts 3rd Annual Kilometers for Chris Event

Team Challenge 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk

 St. Charles, MO- Lindenwood University’s Recreation Department will be hosting the 3rd annual Kilometers for Chris event on April 27, 2014.  This year’s event is a team building challenge.  Teams comprised of 4-5 members will compete in a fun atmosphere overcoming obstacles as a team.  At each kilometer, there will be a different challenge to complete.  All of the challenges are accessible for anyone but will require teamwork.  There will also be a 1-mile fun run for those who wish to support the cause, or do not want to compete in the team challenge.


The event will take place on the Lindenwood University-St. Charles Campus.  The course starts on the Heritage Campus at Roemer Hall and runs through the entire campus ending in Hunter Stadium.  Both runs will begin at 9:00 a.m.


The Kilometers for Chris event was started in 2012 in support of Chris Lister, an alum of Lindenwood University-St. Charles, who was struck by a car while participating in a 10K run and seriously injured.  All proceeds are donated to support Chris in his recovery.


Participants can register online at www.lindenwood.edu/kilometersforchris. Pre-registration ends on April 13, 2014.  Prices increase after pre-registration.  Sponsorships and volunteers are needed.

For more information or to support Chris’s recovery, please email kilometersforchris@lindenwood.edu or contact the Recreation Department at 636-255-2213.
