STILLWATER, Oklahoma -- The fifth annual "Remember the Ten" run will take place in Stillwater Saturday, April 16. The race will start on the Oklahoma State University campus and offers runners the choice of a 1 mile fun run and 5 and 10 K races.

"We want to celebrate the lives of the ten, as well as provide resources for current and future students who must deal with grief issues during their time at OSU," said event founder and chair Kerry Alexander, who began the run to remember the 10 men who died in the 2001 OSU Basketball plane crash.

Since the run's inception, a total of $80,000 has been raised and given to OSU Counseling Services.

Kickoff for the event will begin at 7:30 a.m. on race day in front of Gallagher-Iba Arena on the OSU-Stillwater campus. Online registration is open until 5 p.m. on April 15 with a cost of $25. Registration the day of the event will be $30.
