The inaugural Keep Me Maryland 5K was a huge success.  By noon on October 4, over 1,000 participants were registered, and event registration had to be closed.  College Park Foundation Board of Trustees member and UMD alum, Harvey Sanders, was the inspiration behind the event which raised over $50,000 for the Keep Me Maryland Fund. 

SGA was supportive, encouraging students and student organizations to get involved.  On Sunday, 29 student volunteers helped to direct and encourage the runners and walkers on the course.  Another 645 students registered to participate. 

The event was organized by Campus Recreation Services with support from the UMD Police Department, University Marketing, and the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.  Under Armour donated 1150 t-shirts for participants and volunteers and five $100 gift certificates.  Five Guys and Lime also donated five $50 gift cards each.  The student organization prizes were donated by Intercollegiate Athletics and various Student Affairs departments.
