Aerobathon for United Way
KALAMAZOO--Spend the day pumping your abdominals, getting your kicks or just climbing the walls to benefit the United Way at an aerobic marathon at Western Michigan University.

The WMU Aerobathon runs from 12:30 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, in the first floor gym of the Student Recreation Center. Tickets are $5 in advance or $7 on the day of the event and available at the recreation center service desk. All proceeds will go to the WMU United Way Giving Campaign.

The climbing wall also will be open 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

WMU's campus drive has generated more than $216,000 to date, about 72 percent of its $300,000 goal, all of which will be contributed to the Greater Kalamazoo United Way.
