"Mizzou Mile" Provides Tiger Textbooks
COLUMBIA - MU students and community members ran in the "Mizzou Mile" Tuesday evening. Runners registered and started the race at Tiger Plaza, ran a mile-long course through campus and finished right back where they started. Event coordinators say more than 150 people ran in Tuesday's race, more than last year.
This is the third year the Mizzou Student Foundation has hosted the event. Proceeds from registration fees will be put toward textbook scholarships for working Mizzou students who need help paying for books. The event generated about $1,500, enough to provide scholarships for three students. Students who are eligible for the scholarship can apply through the student foundation here.
