CU Organizes “Lovathon”
It was another time to relax, have fun, interact and extend hands of love and care to the less privileged as Covenant University students, staff and faculty participated in the first ever ‘Love Marathon’ tagged, “Lovathon” on Saturday, October 5, 2014.
One could feel the excitement in the atmosphere as participants walked, jogged and ran to the University gate.
The programme, organised by Project One Million Souls, a students’ humanitarian group, in conjunction with the Student Council, featured sack race, spoon race, egg race, tug of war, chess, scramble, raffle draw, monopoly, dancing competition, eating competition and lots more.
Music boomed as participants danced and made merry. Most of them were dressed in a vest with Lovathon inscription at the event that was aimed at changing lives.
An Executive of Project One Million Souls, Onyemere Akuoma, a 200 Level Mass Communication student, stated that the aim of the programme was to raise fund to reach out to the needy and the group hope to make it an annual event.
Udensi Onyebuchi, a 300 Level Civil Engineering student, also stated that the programme was a good one that gave students the opportunity to relax after a stressful week. “We could play our childhood games, which actually brought back our childhood memories, it was fun,” he said.
Sanni Onize, a 100 Level Accounting student, commended the organisers of the programme for its ability to unite people. “I have made friends today”, she said.
