UM Physical Therapy to Hold Second Skeleton Skedaddle

September 28, 2018

MISSOULA – The Physical Therapy Student Association at the University of Montana will hold its second Skeleton Skedaddle on Sunday, Oct. 28, on the Oval.

The Skeleton Skedaddle 5K and 1K run/walk will provide a fun public event for all ages and abilities to showcase Halloween costumes and have the chance to win prizes. The race is all-inclusive and ADA accessible.

The race serves as a fundraiser to assist physical therapy students with travel expenses to attend the Physical Therapy Combined Sections Meeting and National Student Conclave. These national conferences provide opportunities for students to present research, network with future employers and stay informed as future health care professionals.

Last year’s inaugural Skeleton Skedaddle had more than 200 participants and raised nearly $5,000.

This year’s 1K race starts at 2:15 p.m. and costs $15 ($20 after Thursday, Oct. 11). The 5K race starts at 3 p.m. and costs $25 ($30 after Oct. 11). Register at http://www.runsignup.com/skeletonskedaddle5K.
