Why the "Coffee Buzz" 5k?
IntApp works hard to promote mutual respect for different cultures and to engage all students and community members in friendship and learning. The scholarship fund toward which all of our proceeds will go is in memory of one of our most dedicated members, Landon Hill, who died after contracting bacterial meningitis while studying abroad in Spain in the fall of 2011. Landon is a symbol of what our IntApp members strive to be; while at Appalachian he was a leader in improving our organization and encouraged us all to hold ourselves accountable to reach our goals. He consistently reached out to the international students in meaningful ways—a fact made clear by the sheer number of Appalachian’s former international students he was able to visit at their home universities while he was abroad. Along with his passion for enhancing his intercultural perspective, Landon was a runner who was crazy about coffee. We thought there could be no better way to raise money for his scholarship than a 5K run and some coffee.
