RUSHFORD, Minn. - On Saturday May 31, 2014 everyone is invited to participate in the Global Run 5K, but it’s not just for runners. Those who would also just like to go for a nice stroll may participate as well. Lenora Powell is a Junior at Rushford-Peterson High School and has been selected to serve as a student ambassador this summer with People to People International. People to People International strives to promote peace through understanding. She will be representing the United States while growing respect for other cultures in the countries of Germany, Belgium, Wales, Austria, the Netherlands, England, and France.

Lenora has been selected to travel and volunteer in these European countries in July for three weeks, but to go on this trip she must raise the $7,000 necessary to afford it. Therefore, the Global Run 5K.

The Global Run will take off from the Rushford Depot Museum at 10:30 a.m. with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m. The suggested donation is $20 for individuals (10 and under FREE) and $50 for families.

Those interested in participating may pre-register online at
