Sunshine and exercise both improve dispositions, foster friendships, and pair excellently with cheetah-print tracksuits. Take a stylish stroll or run with today's Groupon for two entries to the Orville Rogers Run for the Hills walk or run. The event takes place at the International Linguistics Center campus on Saturday, May 14. Both runners and walkers should arrive between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get entry for two adults to the 5K run (up to a $40 value).
- For $20, you get entry for two adults to the 1.5-mile walk (up to a $40 value).
Setting a fitness-friendly pace for all participants while simultaneously supporting cultural enlightenment, Orville Rogers Run for the Hills benefits the International Museum of Culture's globe-shrinking Travis Day Camp. The 5K run begins promptly at 9 a.m. and the 1.5-mile walk follows closely at 9:20 a.m. Afterward, organizers hand out prizes and solemn, dignified rounds of high-fives. Prizes will be awarded in each age category, and all registered amblers and speed-fiends earn an official commemorative T-shirt.
Travis Day Camp introduces children kindergarten through sixth grades to cultures from around the world, exploring exotic foods, games, lifestyles, and time zones.
International Museum of Cultures
Though many anthropological museums focus on peoples who are long gone, the International Museum of Cultures displays more than 10 storied exhibits on contemporary indigenous populations from around the world, including Papua New Guinea, Mexico, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Here, visitors glean insight into the respective cultures and the challenges they face. As guests peruse the displays, they can explore Lakota Sioux artifacts such as dream catchers and arrowheads, learn about the hunter-gatherer Agta from the Philippines, and listen to Drumbeats of the World, an interactive exhibit that pulsates with percussive heartbeats from Ecuador, Pakistan, and Korea.
