Dying to pull out some leg warmers and sport some serious sprayed bangs? Register for the most excellent run around – That '80s Run – set for Saturday, April 26, on the SCC campus. The event features a ridiculously rad 10k run, a totally tubular 5k and an awesome 1-Mile Fun Run. All eligible participants will be entered into a drawing for a $1,000 SCC scholarship. If that doesn't do it, perhaps a choice of three neon shirts and an '80s themed photo booth and music might. Register today!
