The Quality Life Center and FGCU are partnering to host the first ever "Survive and Thrive 5k Obstacle Run/Walk"! This race will benefit the Quality Life Center Teen Program's trip to Washington, D.C.!  

This event has something for everyone! From the serious athlete, to the walker... all are welcome! Participants can either choose to "Survive" or "Thrive"!

Survive participants- These are the more serious runners who just want to participate in a 5k! 

Thrive participants- Get ready for some good old fashioned fun! These participants will use their brains or their brawn to complete various obstacles along the race route! Think "Minute to Win It" meets "The Amazing Race". 

*There are many incentives for participation including t-shirts (for the first 200 participants), prizes, and an exclusive after party! The after party will be held in Cohen Center 214 immediately following the race!*

*If you are a QLC student, family member, or board member please contact the Quality Life Center for the coupon code!
