ABOUT McKENDREE SPORT MANAGEMENT
2023 5K Charity Race
The 2023 Race for Love raises money for Leaps of Love.
McKendree University Sport Management seniors entirely plan and execute the event as their major capstone class project.
In 2023, the 5K Race for Love lets us support Leaps of Love, an organization located in Highland, IL, that embraces families that are or have been affected by childhood cancer.
Event & Facilities Management class
2023 marks the ninth year of a hands-on, experiential learning Sport Event & Facilities Management course that raises funds for a local nonprofit organization of the students' choice.
Developing, planning, executing, and evaluating this event helps Sport Management majors put their classroom learning to use and understand "real world" scenarios.
It also gives students sales, marketing, and sponsorship experiences, as well as networking opportunities outside the classroom.
