The NYU School of Professional Studies is pleased to announce the Third Annual NYUSPS 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, October 29, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. The brainchild of Dean Dennis Di Lorenzo, an avid runner himself, this event raises funds to support scholarships for NYUSPS students, helping them to complete their education and get off to a running start! Join fellow alumni, students, faculty members, administrators, and friends of NYUSPS for this exciting event. What better way to enjoy a day than to partake in this early morning race for a worthy cause at beautiful Hudson River Park?
