Third Annual WhiteHot 5k Will Honor Kent State Alumna

Posted Apr. 7, 2014

Kent State University’s Department of Military Sciences will host the third annual WhiteHot 5k on Saturday, April 26, in honor of the late Kent State alumna Ashley White, ‘09. 

Participants will “run to remember” 1st Lt. White who was killed in action in October 2011. White graduated and commissioned from Kent State in 2009.

“The race is a perfect way to bring together the friends and family of Ashley,” says Jennifer Abate, race coordinator. “We try to avoid it being just another 5k. The run is less of a competition than a memorial to truly honor Ashley’s memory.”

The race will start at 8 a.m. at Terrace Hall. The $25 registration may be completed at or, and the first 500 registrants receive a WhiteHot T-shirt.

Call 330-672-8211 or visit the WhiteHot 5k Facebook page with any questions.
