A&M-Central Texas Hosting Color Run to Benefit Military Student Organization

Texas A&M University–Central Texas is gearing up for a Patriots’ Day Fun Run on Sept. 9 at 10 a.m. The event, hosted by the Military and Veteran Services office will benefit the veteran student organization on campus.

Registration for the color run is $10 and includes a t-shirt. Register online at Runners will gather at Warrior Hall on the A&M–Central Texas campus prior to the 10 a.m. start time.

Joshua Missouri, director of the military and veteran services office at A&M–Central Texas, said the event is meant to bring the campus, community and military students together in remembrance of 9-11 and to build engagement, which benefits military and veteran students.

“We hope to encourage support for students who are trying to have better jobs, better communities and better lives after serving in the military,” Missouri said. “The thought is really to bring them together and bring the community in and provide them with resources that are oftentimes found outside of the military or campus community.”

Missouri, a former petty officer in the United States Navy, hopes this will be the first of many more events that will spark interest in an active and vibrant Student Veterans of American group on the A&M–Central Texas campus and promote healthy living among veterans.
