The Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is hosting the seventh annual Huskers for Hearing 5K Saturday, April 27, on East Campus. 

The event, which benefits HearU Nebraska and SAA, begins at 9 a.m. at the Barkley Memorial Center. For the second year in a row, a virtual option is also available for individuals who would like to participate but are unable to attend the event in Lincoln. 

Online registration is available until April 26. Participants ages 8 and older receive a water bottle with their $35 registration fee. Children ages 7 and under are free. Individuals may also register the morning of the event with cash or check payments. The virtual option costs an additional $5 for shipping, and participants are asked to email photos of their distance tracking devices to saa@unl.edu.
