Medical students from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) will host the third annual Sprint for Sparks 5K run/walk Sunday, October 2 to benefit the Sparks student-run health clinic.
Since its opening in 2013, the Medical Student Run Clinic has provided an ever-expanding array of essential medical services to the underserved Sparks community in east El Paso.
Services include lab diagnostics, women’s health screenings and vaccines. The clinic is open twice a month, and run entirely by students from TTUHSC El Paso’s Paul L. Foster School of Medicine under the guidance of volunteer physicians — also from TTUHSC El Paso.
Sprint for Sparks will take place along Scenic Drive. Participants will gather at Newman Park prior to the race, which starts at 8 a.m. The entry fee is $20 per individual registrant and $15 per registrant for groups of 10 or more.
The first 150 people to sign up will receive a Sprint for Sparks T-shirt. Participants can register at: http://tinyurl.com/SprintForSparks-15.
