Lander University and the family of Glenas Green invite the public to participate in the Glenas Green Community Action Day 5K Walk/Run on Saturday, August 13 from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at the Jeff May Complex on Montague Avenue.

The event is a fundraiser for the Glenas D. Green College of Education Endowed Scholarship at Lander and the Glenas’s Girls Mentoring Program at Brewer Middle School.

Entry fees are $20 for adults, $15 for participants aged six to 18 and $5 for children five and under competing in the Kiddie Run.

Green, who graduated from Lander in 1979 with a degree in early childhood education, worked for 30 years as an educator in Greenwood County, where she taught at four different elementary schools. She also served as a guidance counselor, assistant principal and coordinator of Girl Power, a mentoring program for teenage girls at Brewer.

She died in 2010 after a struggle with pancreatic cancer.

Lander Alumni Director Myra Greene said that the Glenas Green fundraiser “honors the memory of an extraordinary woman who gave so much of herself to her students and the community.” She expressed the hope that “all of Greenwood will come out and participate.”
