The Student Academy of Audiology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will host its fifth annual Huskers for Hearing 5K Fun Run April 22, on East Campus.
Online registration for the 5K is open until April 5. Participants may also register the day of the event with cash or check payments.
Cost is $35 for individuals ages 8 and older, and includes an event T-shirt. Children ages 7 and under are free.
In addition to the 5K, the event will also include a silent auction.
Proceeds from the Huskers for Hearing 5K benefit HearU Nebraska, a nonprofit organization that provides hearing aids to children birth to 18 years of age who have a hearing impairment and whose insurance does not cover the cost of hearing aids. In addition, funds raised by the Huskers for Hearing 5K will assist the university’s Student Academy of Audiology by providing travel grants for members to attend professional conferences.
Through its first four years of hosting the Huskers for Hearing 5K, the Student Academy of Audiology has raised more than $10,000.
