"Stampede For Student Success," Oct. 2
Running, walking options available at Gaston College event

Lincoln Herald Staff

It’s all about running for success.

It’s the inaugural “Stampede for Student Success,” and it’s coming up Oct. 2 at the Gaston College Dallas Campus. According to college spokeswoman Linda Vespa, the event will feature a timed three-mile run at 8:30 a.m. and a non-competitive walk of one and a quarter miles at 9 a.m. The event is presented by the Gaston College Foundation. Proceeds from participant entrance fees, donations and sponsorships will go toward the Gaston College Fund, which ensures immediate funding to meet critical campus needs and help students in a variety of ways.

Vespa continued that the name, “Stampede for Success,” was inspired by the school’s new mascot, the rhinoceros. The race course follows a scenic route through the college’s 150-acre campus. The course has been officially certified by USA Track and Field, the national governing body for track and field, long-distance running and race-walking. To learn more, or if you’d like to donate, sponsor or register to participate, run on over to the Website at

Immediately following the event, Gaston College will host an open house for high school students and their families, teachers and counselors; adult learners; and members of the community who want to learn about the opportunities available on all Gaston College campuses in Dallas, Lincolnton, and Belmont. The open house will run until 12:30 p.m.
