St. Louis's First Rock and Roll Marathon Provides a Fun Experience

The Rock and Roll Marathon/Half-Marathon was held for the first time in St. Louis on Sunday, October 23, 2011.  Saint Louis University served as the primary sports medicine sponsor for the race.  Volunteers from all parts of SLU volunteered to help this event be a success!  Faculty and students from the SLU Athletic Training Education Program served as medical volunteers providing first aid for the event.
