CHICO, Calif. — A young cattlemen’s group at the university here is seeking help with putting on a fun run later this month to promote heart health through consuming beef.

The Young Cattlemen’s Association at California State University-Chico is raising money and seeking sponsors for its “Beefin’ It Up 5K’ event April 26 at the university farm.

The group is asking for minimum donations from local cattlemen’s groups or individuals, and sponsors will get their name and logo on the back of the event T-shirt as well as other promotion opportunities, according to a California Cattlemen’s Association newsletter.

Local cattlemen’s and cattlewomen’s groups will also host educational booths to promote heart health with beef during the event, which will kick off at 10 a.m.

“What the CSU-Chico Young Cattlemen’s Association is trying to do is a fundraiser for both the club and (to) promote heart healthy choices through beef,” event organizer Jennifer Kaslin said in an email.

“We are hoping to raise enough money to cover the costs of the event and leave a healthy amount for the next year’s club members to enjoy,” she said. “We hope to make this an annual event and leave a good impression on this year’s participants.”

Registration for the run and walk itself is $25 and will be taken until April 18. Sponsors are asked to submit their donations by April 11, which enables them to such perks as Facebook mentions with a direct link to their websites and having their names and logos shown on race banners.

Contributions have already come from the Butte County Cattlemen and Cattlewomen, Humboldt Grassfed Beef and other organizations and businesses, according to the young cattlemen’s Facebook page.
