Homecoming Kick-Off & Nearly Naked Mile
Monday, September 24th, 2018
5 - 8 pm | Duck Pond Field

Nearly Naked Mile 950x2048Join us in kicking off Appalachian State’s 2018 Homecoming! This event is brought to you by Club Council, Appalachian Ambassadors, APPS, SGA and Alumni Affairs. Chill and grill with your student organization, run the 4th Annual Nearly Naked Mile with the Ambassadors and SGA and pick up swag from Alumni Affairs. This event is sure to be spirited and start the week off with a bang.  Club Council will provide free hotdogs and hamburgers, and APPS will provide free App State foam-fingers and swag.  Don't miss out!

The Student Ambassadors invite you to join us in running bare, because we care. The 4th Annual Nearly Naked Mile asks students to donate a coat or two other articles of clothing to the Hospitality House as a registration fee to participate. Runners are then encouraged to "bare" it all - down to bathing suit coverage - during the one-mile run around campus. This event is meant to spread awareness about the homeless population in Boone who sometimes don't have enough to wear in the winter.
