Is it COMMON for System i’ers to run 5K?

Hat tip to David Vasta, who pointed me to the site of the COMMON 5k charity walk/run, which will take place during COMMON’s annual meeting in Reno in April.

Proceeds from the COMMON Cares charity run will go toward the COMMON Education Foundation and a local Reno charity to be named later. Here’s a good summary of the event:

This run/walk is for everyone – whether you’re a seasoned runner, an early-riser, trying to get back into shape, or attending COMMON for the first time and just want to make new friends, consider taking part in this first-ever 5K charity race.

With the numerous sessions, Exposition activities, and networking events on the agenda, finding the time to exercise will be challenging. In addition to starting out the conference feeling energized, you will be supporting two wonderful charities.

It’s always good to try to get some exercise in, even if you’re traveling. Just ask these mainframers who went for a jog at SHARE.

And if you’re just not into exercising, maybe you could just donate during COMMON Cares’ blood drive at the Reno show.
