Murray State ASSE Student Chapter Participates in the 2012 Mudicine Run
The Murray State University ASSE Student Chapter got “down and dirty” to help the local community. Approximately 30 OSH students  and 2 OSH faculty members participated in the first ever “Mudicine Run” in Marshall County. The proceeds of this 5k were raised to help support the new free health clinic. Students showed up bright and early ready to run, the race started with a 2 mile run followed by a mile of muddy obstacles. The morning was filled with laughter and cheering as each team crossed the finish line. This is just one of the many ways our local ASSE chapter is building friendships and giving back to the community.

Murray State ASSE students used the Dollar General storefront in Murray, KY, as the venue for the drive. A big thank you to Dollar General and all of the people who were kind enough to donate several hundred dollars worth of needed items for Oklahoma.
