Tulsa Route 66 Main Street will be hosting the Bunion Derby 5K Race and Sock Walk this Saturday beginning at Webster High School’s Milton Stadium, 1919 W. 40th St., at 8:05 a.m. OSU-CHS is a sponsor of the event.

The race is in honor of the Bunion Derby of 1928, an 84-day jog from Los Angeles to New York City, much of which took place along Route 66. Saturday’s course will take runners along Cherry Creek Trail in southwest Tulsa, while walkers take part in a one-mile walk around Milton Stadium or a quarter-mile stroll in socks around the track.

Proceeds raised from the event will support Communities in Schools, a program benefitting students at OSU-CHS’ Partner in Education, Eugene Field Elementary. For more information or to register, visit the Bunion Derby website.

Everyone’s efforts are what have made our energy conservation program so successful. One person doesn’t make a behavior-based energy program successful. It takes all of us being energy users and savers. The OSU in Tulsa Energy Conservation Program has saved more than $3 million - one decision and one cowboy at a time. Thank you for being part of that success!
