#PTKAW will be holding our second annual 5K Run (“April Duel II”) on the Washburn University campus in Topeka, Kansas on Saturday, April 7, 2018, from 10:00-11:00 AM.

The 5K will raise funds for PTKAW members to attend the Phi Theta Kappa Catalyst (International Convention) in Kansas City, MO, in April 2018. One half of the proceeds will benefit our long-time volunteer partner Community Health Ministry.

All Washburn students, clubs, faculty, and staff, all PTK chapters across the region, and the entire Topeka community are invited to participate as runners or volunteers. There will be no fee for runners, but we will have a suggested donation of $15.

PTKAW will need volunteer help in the following areas:
• Crossing guards to direct participants on campus (at least 11 needed)
• Water stations
• Registering runners/taking donations
• Setup/tear-down
• Photography

In particular we invite all Washburn student organizations to participate in any way possible!

The 5K Route will be different than the first 5K run held last April. Details will be published before the run.

Registration begins at 9:00 AM, location TBD (likely starting line). The run itself goes from 10:00-11:00 AM.

Again, many more details must be determined about the logistics of the event and we will share the additional info as soon as we get it.

Anyone who wants to participate, either as a runner or volunteer or who has questions, can e-mail us at, message us through our Facebook page, or leave a comment on our website. We look forward to ringing in spring with you and helping our members achieve a long-held goal!
