Ready To Do The Selfie Shuffle?

Whether you are a triathlete or a self-professed couch potato, it’s time to put on your shoes and do the “Selfie Shuffle.” TAPPI’s 17th Annual Runnability Fun 5K Run/Walk is taking a different route this year. Participants will still run or walk to help students achieve a future career in the pulp and paper industry, but they will do it on their own schedule and in a location of their own choosing.

Attendee health and safety is TAPPI’s primary concern, so this year’s Runnability Fun Run/Walk will be held individually. Participants will run or walk between May 4-18, 2021 and send TAPPI their results using a “selfie” commemorating the moment. The selfies will then be posted to the TAPPICon website. All proceeds go to support TAPPI’s Scholarship Fund for Engineering, Process Control, Process and Product Quality, Paper and Board, and Coating and Graphic Arts Divisions.

Why not take advantage of this exclusive opportunity to help others and have fun at the same time? There will be no Runnability Fun Run/Walk in the fall.
