Mississippi State's Office of Technology Management is co-sponsoring the fourth annual Walk at Lunch Day in the university's Thad Cochran Research, Technology and Economic Development Park.
The event promotes physical and mental health by encouraging members of the campus and local community to enjoy a one-mile walk around the research park during their lunch break. Vendors with beneficial health information and delicious food will be set up throughout the research park loop.
A canned goods drive benefitting Starkville food banks also is part of this year's event. Those who donate two canned goods will receive one ticket entry for a raffle of items from local businesses. Tickets will be placed toward the entrant's item of choice - more cans means more chances to win!
Donations can be made Tuesday [April 27] and Wednesday [April 28] from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Office of Technology Management, 100 Research Blvd., Suite 120x in the Thad Cochran Research, Technology and Economic Development Park.
In addition to OTM, event organizers include Camgian Microsystems, II-VI, MSU's Research and Technology Corporation, and Power of the Almond.
