A Heartfelt Run

What happens to our hearts when we run? Many will find out what their heart feels like when they run at the 3rd annual Campbell Cardiac 5K on Saturday, Sept. 29 at 8 am. Check out the map at: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/127379163

It is held to celebrate National Family Health and Fitness, and all proceeds will be donated to the American Heart Association. The American Heart Association’s goal is to further heart health education and research. To further your education on hearts, start with what happens to our hearts when we run by checking out this video:

After the 5K, there will be a mini health fair where free blood pressure and blood glucose screenings will be given. You can curb your appetite with healthy snacks and learn about over the counter medications from Campbell’s Pharmacy students.

Food Fight!!!

Have you ever dreamed of getting in a food fight? Have you wanted to throw all sorts of food at people that you may or may not know and get crazy messy? Well, there is a food fight happening on campus starting tomorrow, Sept. 25; however, it is not your typical food fight. There won’t be any mess or food flying through the air that will land on your intended target. I know, you are probably thinking what fun is that and what is the purpose. Well, the purpose is to help the Harnett Food Pantry that is in dire need of supplies. They serve 200 families a month and are getting low on supplies. Get your arsenals of cans and food ready to donate to help win this fight. It may not be messy, but it can be fun.

Make it a competition with your friends. See who can donate the most food or even the most random food. Create a scavengar hunt at the grocery store and whoever checks out first wins. Be creative, and do what you can to help out!

Bins will be set up in academic buildings, residence halls, the fitness center, Carter Gym, and the student centers. Targets are everywhere, and you have until Nov. 15. Stock up on your ammunition and fight!

Sushi Night

Head out to the Student Center now for Sushi Night! It is gonna be fun and filled with tons of yummy sushi. There will even be a demonstration by Dr. You on how to make sushi!

9/11 Remembered

We’re Still Standing

~ Hannah Schoechert, 7th grade student

Those twin towers Standing tall with pride,

Fell with grieving hearts.

Stunned, America cried.

But we’re still standing.

Bin Laden tried

To crush our land,

But we stood our ground

With our flag in hand.

And we’re still standing.

Red for valor

And the blood that fell.

White for purity

Our heroes tell.

Blue for the justice

That will be done,

Proving once more

These colors don’t run.

And we’re still standing.

Many still remember what they were doing on September 11, 2001.

“I was in 4th grade when the 9/11 happened. No adults would explain anything except the fact that America was attacked and they might have been invaded until I got home and my mom and dad explained it to me,” said Jacob Shires a junior in political science pre-law.

It is something that is not forgotten easily, and we remember all those that lost thier lives. Where were you that day?

Coming to Life Online!

Goodbye yearbooks of old.  What if a yearbook truly kept up with your daily lives?

Pine Burr Yearbook keeps track of what goes on throughout the year at Campbell University. The distribution of the yearbooks is always an exciting time as students flip through the pages of camel fun and life in the Creek. Pine Burr Yearbook is now making strides to extend what they are all about to become a go to source of information and record of Campbell life through social media and online sources.

Make sure to check regularly for new blog posts about Campbell stories, previews of events, and recaps of what has taken place in the Creek. It will be exciting, current, and provide a new way to connect to the yearbook. You might even see yourself featured. This is not replacing the yearbook. It is simply an extension that will give everyone a taste for what is to come in the spring with yearbook distributions; it will also keep everyone more in touch and updated throughout campus. Get ready for Pine Burr Online where events and people of Campbell come to life online!
