SPOKANE, Wash. – The Gonzaga Journal of International Law will host the 10th annual Human Race 5K starting at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, April 9. The fee is $20 and participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite celebrity for the event to benefit Partners in Health, an international nonprofit organization.

The event will begin and end at the Gonzaga Law School. Participants can register the day of the race at 9:30 a.m. or in advance online at https://commerce.cashnet.com/lawst. Participants will receive a race T-shirt. Partners in Health delivers life-saving healthcare to those in need worldwide. Ninety-four cents of every dollar donated to Partners In Health goes directly to medicines and projects that will help reach its goal of breaking the cycle of poverty and disease.

Colin Crug, marketing editor and public service liaison for GJIL, said the event was started in 2007 for former Gonzaga Law student Kristina Glover.

“Kristina lost her battle to ovarian cancer during her final year of law school. This 5K honors her dedication to bring vital medical care to those who need it,” Crug said. Last year, the Human Race 5K raised $3,048. Sponsors for this year’s event include the Spokane Indians baseball, Donut Parade, Starbucks, Forza, Qdoba, Rosauers, Kaplan, Lexis and Mary Schultz Law, P.S.

The Gonzaga Journal of International Law is a student-run, online legal journal. Founded in 1997, GJIL seeks to expand its influence beyond the pages of the Journal by actively addressing pertinent issues affecting the legal and political communities both in the United States and abroad.
