The Mountaineer Maniacs and West Virginia University professor Daniel Brewster are sponsoring a 5K run/walk on Sunday (April 15) at 10:30 a.m.

The run/walk starts at the WVU Student Recreation Center. All proceeds from the event will go toward Ryan’s Rally, which is a trust for former student Ryan Diviney who was injured in an altercation in late 2009.

There are three different ways to sign up for the event. Runners and walkers can register online at for $17.50, at the Mountainlair today through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for $15 or on the morning of the event at the Rec Center starting at 10 a.m. for $20.

“It’s great to offer an opportunity for the community to support the cause of a fellow Mountaineer. The more support the better,” said Steve Staffileno, director of the Maniacs.
