Latino Alumni Council Day of the Dead Virtual 5K


The NIU Latino Alumni Council is once again hosting a virtual 5K from Oct. 30-Nov. 6. 

Wear a costume, your sugar skull shirt or NIU gear and walk, jog or run and have fun!

Don’t forget to take fun pictures along the way to post on social media with the hashtag #NIUDayOfTheDead5K or #NIUDiaDeLosMuertos5k. Remember to be careful during your 5K. 

Feel free to take breaks and participate in a way that works best for you. The main goal is to get people active and healthy!

The NIU LAC is using the Strava platform to track everyone's progress. First, you will need to join the NIU Latino Alumni Council Running Club, then you can register for the event.

Questions? Please contact Dana King, ’05, at or 815-753-5421.
