Run for the Roses

Run for the Roses

Since the inaugural year in 1987, Alpha Omicron Pi and Ames Area Running Club have contributed over $356,000 to Arthritis Research Grants. These grants fund research at major universities and research institutes to hopefully find a cure for arthritis. Through the past 36 years of working with the Ames Area Running Club, our passion for raising awareness for arthritis has grown thanks to our sponsors and race participants. We thank you for your participation in helping us make a difference! Medals are awarded to the top 3 male and female finishers in five year age divisions from age 13 and under through age 90+ in the 5K and 10K runs. A medal and one dozen roses are awarded to the overall male and female finishers in the 5K and 10K runs.
