The Central Michigan University Physical Therapy Student Organization is hosting two events this weekend to raise money to "Stomp Out Multiple Sclerosis."

The first event is a spaghetti dinner from 5-8 p.m. Friday, July 12 at First Presbyterian Church, located at 1250 Watson Rd. For $5, visitors can eat as much spaghetti, bread and salad as they like.

On Saturday, July 13, there will be a 5K Color Run/Walk. Registration will begin at 7:45 a.m. outside the Health Professions Building, located at 1280 E. Campus Drive. 

The race will begin at 9 a.m. The route follows the perimeter of campus, mostly on paved sidewalks. The course is relatively flat and is wheelchair accessible. 

After the race, there will be a raffle drawing and light refreshments.

Those interested can pre-register online for $20, or they can register the day of the race for $25.

All of the proceeds from the spaghetti dinner, the raffle and the race will go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society - Michigan Chapter. Dearborn doctoral student Lara Nasser said the group raised $4,071.86 last year.
