OREM, Utah - The Utah Valley University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will host the "Green 4 Good 5K" fundraiser Saturday, April 13, at the Lakeside Sports Park in Vineyard/Orem, Utah (400 S. 1850 W.) at 8 a.m.

The event was organized for Kalina Zufelt-Clegg, a former cross-country and track and field athlete at UVU, who is currently battling Stage IV ovarian cancer. All proceeds raised from the 5K will help cover financial costs of surgeries and other medical procedures.

The race will be $15 for early registration and $20 the day of the race. Patrons will also receive a T-shirt for support. To register, visit Runnercard.com.
