Race NIjUdicata: NIU College of Law 5K Run/Walk & BBQ

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in our first annual NIU College of Law Race NIjUdicata!  We had 144 runners and walkers participating.  The event started right on time and the thunderstorms held off just long enough for great running conditions.  The day ended with a wonderful BBQ by Inboden's.  Most importantly, a good time was had by all, and we raised a lot of money to aid our law school.

Thank you to Dean Rosato for being the inspiration for the run as well as an excellent participant.  Also a special thank you to the NIU Police Department who assisted us throughout the entire event.  And of course, a big thanks goes out to our wonderful volunteers for all their help in setting up, cleaning up, registering our runners, controlling traffic and monitoring the course during the race.  This was a team effort, and we are extraordinarily grateful for your time and your energy.  Thanks especially to all of our sponsors, without whom this event would not have been possible, for their wonderful generosity and support for NIU Law.  The full list of sponsors is below, as are photos.

We hope to see everyone again next year!
