Baptist Student Ministry Hosts 5K Walk/Run

Looking for an excuse to wear that downright ugly holiday sweater Grandma bought? The Baptist Student Ministry, on the campus of Texas A&M University – Commerce, may have a solution for you.

The Baptist Student Ministry, located at 1612 Lee Street in Commerce , is hosting the “Tacky Christmas Sweater 5K”, and will hopefully bring some Christmas cheer to students and the local community.

Joe Schmidt, Director of the Baptist Student Ministry, says the idea was first pitched as a way to “raise money to pay [the] intern” on staff. Schmidt and the Ministry are allocated money separately from two different organizations, and once all the bills are paid, there is simply nothing left.

The BSM encourages all to come out and support, and if for nothing more, to show off that tacky Christmas sweater.

Race Day is Saturday, December 8, 2012 at 8 a.m. For more information, including access to registration forms and the race location, visit the Baptist Student Ministry’s website at www.bsmtamu-commerce.org.
