Walk-ins Welcome at 5K on Saturday!

We hope you will join us tomorrow and celebrate MCC's Homecoming with a 5K Walk/Run for Scholarships, Tailgate Party, Tribunes soccer matches and an alumni photography exhibit in the Mercer Gallery.

The festivities begin at 9:30 a.m. at the Brighton Campus when check-in opens for the 5K walk/run. Didn't have a chance to register? Walk-ins are welcome! Come early and check out the caricature artist, face painting, chair massages, photo area, children's activities, Zumba warm up and more.

A percentage of sales will support student scholarships when you purchase Dippin' Dots ice cream, Duke's Donuts, a tutu or visit our vendors: Ann's Cool Wood Jewelry, Tamika Turner Skin Care, Jay Hyland Jewelry and Hannah's Crafts and Gifts.

The race starts at 11 a.m., followed by the Tailgate Party and lunch at 11:30 a.m. Lunch tickets may be purchased for $5. At 12:30 p.m. award winners will be announced and the scholarship drawing will take place.
