Doctor of physical therapy students are hosting a hair-raising “The Running Dead” 5K walk/run on Saturday, Oct. 29, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Chased by zombies through a forested trail, runners will attempt to beat the odds of survival. Costumes of all kinds (not just zombies) are encouraged, and a prize will be awarded for best costume.

Runners under the age of 18 need to have a parent or guardian present to sign. Show up early for pre-run games and activities and to receive a survivor bandana.

It's back! Pool-a-Palooza is making its second splash in Newberg.

This event is open to all kids, including those with all varieties of disabilities. George Fox University Doctor of Physical Therapy students will be available to assist children with disabilities.

There will be open swim time and group games to facilitate teamwork and fun! Kids with limited swimming abilities are encouraged to wear life vests, and it is requested to have a parent or caregiver in the water for those who require one-on-one supervision.

There is no charge to attend, as the primary aim is to make this event accessible to all families and kids, regardless of financial situation. There will be an optional donation jar at the door to benefit the George Fox DPT medical missions trips happening in the summer of 2017.

Note that there is currently a registration cap of 30 kids due to staffing and facility limitations, so please register soon.
