62 participants joined Iowa State’s chapter of Circle K International this past Saturday for the second annual Circle 5K Run/Walk. The organization raised around $300 for Project Eliminate, which provides mothers across the world with Tetanus vaccines.

Organization president Tia Carter said “volunteering is near and dear to my heart” and central to the focus of the whole organization. Circle K International itself is a collegiate organization sponsored by Kiwanis International.

The previous year’s event had about 35 participants according to Carter.

“Popularity has boomed. We have had a lot more publicity and a lot more people are interested,” Carter said.
