LITS Winship 5K Team (L to R): Felicia Bianchi, Kim Comstock, Bonita Russell, Marc Overcach, Rich Mendola, Amm Frellsen, Kevin Kirwan, Carole Hirthler, and Amy Allison.

Twenty LITS staff and friends participated in the Winship 5K run/walk on Saturday October 5. It was a beautiful morning for a run around campus and it was a pleasure to meet coworkers across the Division. The division was represented by staff from UTS, R-WIT, IT F&A, the Libraries and our CIO. And we were all wearing the first official LITS t-shirts designed by Norman Hulme (Integration).

The race raised over $451,979 for cancer research. The LITS Unplugged team and sleep-in donors raised over $2,000 for the cause. Participants, runners and sleep-in donors, included:
