The College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) will be an exhibitor at the Hartford Marathon on Saturday, October 12 at Bushnell Park in downtown Hartford. The Hartford Marathon has thousands of participants and volunteers and benefits charities throughout the region. ENHP will have a tent at the finish line runner's expo from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Students and faculty from the college will be promoting proper marathon recovery and positive health outcomes to all those who come to the table. Handouts will include tips on proper hydration, nutrition and exercise by ENHP's Dr. Colleen Munoz, assistant professor of Health Science. Along with learning about ENHP programs, visitors can enter our raffle to win one of three $50 gift cards to Sound Runner, a running shoe store in Glastonbury.
Also, come cheer on seven ENHP physical therapy students as they run in the Hartford half marathon as well as one student running in the full marathon. Huge congratulations to Kelly Blochlinger, Alejandro Tobon, Garrett Brown, Josh Breighner, Heather Hassett, Christian Librizzi, and Jake Goodspeed on participating in the half marathon and to Alyssa Vereneau for the full marathon.
If you're a UHart student, faculty, or staff member running in any of the events on Saturday, please let us know! Send a short email to Mary DiLeo so we can recognize your participation on UNotes after the race.
