Wake PA students run the Moonlight Madness 5K

On September 18, 2015, students from the Wake Forest PA Program participated in the Moonlight Madness 5K in downtown Winston-Salem. The event was held at Bailey Park in the Innovation Quarter, and more than half of the current Winston-Salem cohort ran the race. It was a wonderful community event that happened right off of our front doorstep. Congrats to all who participated!

“I was proud to be able to represent Wake PA alongside the rest of the class; it really felt like we were a part of a team.” – Megan Pinder, PA2017

“This was my first 5k, and after completing the race I felt a sense of accomplishment. Running through the finish line and having the support of both my PA family and the Winston-Salem community was inspirational and created an exhilarating experience for me and my classmates. Having the race on the front steps of the PA program made representing Wake PA to the community a fun and enjoyable event.” – Tyler Leaphart, PA2017

“Moonlight Madness was a really fun event but also an extra special experience to me because it took place in front of 525@Vine. It was amazing to have so many Wake PA runners representing our program and to have each other for support!” – Meredith Browne, PA2016

“I loved this event because it brought the community together and made me realize what an exciting area I live in! I also felt more at home because I was able to speak with and meet other people from the area. My favorite part was having my friends cheer me on at the end of the race from the side lines.” – Autumn Eliason, PA2017
