Running for Charity
Donations for the Sigma Nu
164-mile run from UH to the
University of Texas at Austin began
the week before the game.
Jeff Palmer, Sigma Nu member,
coordinated the run to raise money
for multiple sclerosis. "This is a past
tradition, and we wanted to bring it
back to life," Palmer said, adding
the run had been done regularly for
about 10 years.
"We do a Bike Race in the spring,
and this will be the charity for the
fall," Palmer said.
Mike Loria, one of the runners,
said this charity was not only an
excellent idea to raise money, but a
chance to raise school spirit as well.
Another runner, Tom Anderson,
said he wanted to run because ir
made him feel good to know he's
doing something for charity. Running the game ball was going to fire-
up everyone for the game and raise
enough money for this charity, Anderson added.

The runners reached Austin way

was estimated to take between 30
and 35 hours was actually completed in under 26 hours. -Sonia Sbeiti
