GardenShare 5K Update! Please Read!


Due to the rainy weather heading our way, our Fight Hunger Fair and 5K event will be moving to Leithead Fieldhouse at St. Lawrence University. The fair activities will be held inside the fieldhouse while the 5K will continue outside on the crosscountry trail loop. If you have pre-registered online, expect an email with more information coming soon.

We ask that attendees enter through the pedestrian door of Leithead that is on the same wall and to the left of the Saddlemire Ski Suite (see map below). Parking will be available in D and J lots. Event times and activities will proceed as planned.
