On the morning of Saturday, May 6, the NTC Pryor Campus will transform into a 5K course for the first annual Ken Heddlesten Memorial Scholarship Camo Fun Run. Named in honor of a former PN student who lost his battle with cancer, the run was created to generate scholarships for PN students.
Registration for the Ken Heddlesten Memorial Scholarship Camo Fun Run opens on March 27, and the race itself will take place on May 6. Those who register before the Early Bird Deadline of April 21 will pay $30, and all other registrations up to the day of the race are $35. Those interested in the virtual run will pay only $25, and there is no registration deadline for the virtual run. On the day of the race, registration will open at 8 a.m., and the run itself will begin at 9 a.m.
All the proceeds will be used to offer scholarships to PN students who are accepted into the program and need help offsetting costs. For example, students take an NCLEX Review Class, which can cost upwards of $200 and is not included in their tuition. Often times the class requires travel and an overnight stay, however the class is beneficial in helping students pass their boards.
