The project was a collaboration between faculty members and student groups from Sports Management, Athletic Training, Health Education & Promotion, Physical Education as well as several sports teams, and student clubs with the Circle Program of Plymouth to foster active living in the community. PSU representatives, including 6 student leaders and the project director worked closely with staff of the Circle Program to plan, organize, promote, implement and evaluate a community 2k, 5k, 10K fun-run/walk event on April 29 called the Circle Trot. Over 100 volunteers and 200 registered runners participated in the event. Proceeds from the event directly benefited the Circle Program, a nonprofit organization that provides girls from low-income New Hampshire families with new opportunities to learn the skills, courage and confidence they need to handle the challenges in their lives.
