5K for Karl

The Kappa Sigma Fraternity at Wofford College hosts the tenth annual 5K for Karl race/walk at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019, the Wofford College campus.

Karl Alexander was a vivacious young man who touched the lives of many students in and out of the classroom as a caring and involved student, member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity and member of the lacrosse club team. The loss of Karl to a heart condition after his first year at Wofford has impacted the campus community, but Karl’s positive spirit at Wofford will live on through a scholarship in his honor. All of race proceeds go to fund the Karl Alexander Memorial Scholarship to benefit a future scholar at Wofford.

The 5K for Karl race is a moderate course showcasing the beauty of the Wofford College campus, a national arboretum. The course has rolling hills on pavement and sidewalks.
