Queen of the Roses 5K

The sister of AOII get together after last year’s successful 5k 

The 9th annual Queen of the Roses 5K is this weekend. Come join the sisters of AOII as they raise money for a scholarship in honor of Jasmine Queen, a sister who passed away in 2008. Jasmine was very active at Washington College and was a member of the Softball team and Cleopatra’s Sisters. Every year the sisters of Alpha Omicron Pi, alumni, students, and residents of Chestertown come out to honor her memory. This year’s event will take place on Sunday October 2nd and registration starts at 10am with a race beginning at 11am. You can walk or run and there are opportunities to get prizes for the fastest times. This year’s 5K will also be Harry Potter themed, so dress in your best costume for a chance to win the Golden Snitch.

You can register at the AOII table in Hodson until Friday evening. If you miss that you can also register the day of the race or online at trisports.com.

So come out have some fun and support the memory of a great woman. This is a great event for a great cause!
