Hopes for greener pastures

Stop wasting your mind and your garbage.

Western's Green Team, an environmental student club, will be throwing their best environment questions at students in its first quiz show today in the University Community Centre atrium.

Willing students will be able to step up to the buzzer while the host fires off questions. The winner wins a plant and flower seeds will be awarded as consolation prizes.

"We're hoping to raise awareness of our club along with waste reduction and the environment in general," said Green Team co-president Anne Swift.

The show, which starts at 3:15 p.m., comes at the end of the nationwide Waste Reduction week.

Green Team, in its first year of existence, has been placing recycling and waste bins around campus, Swift said.

Get your butt moving

If you're finding it hard to get off the sofa, let this be a reason to do so.

The schools of Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy will be holding their second annual Run for Rehab on Oct. 27, bringing to an end National Occupational Therapy week.

The 2 p.m. run will support Community Living London and Burn Camp for Kids in Ontario, said occupational therapy student Kelly Williston, an event organizer.

Last year's run raised $1,500 for three charities and this year's goal is to raise $500 each for this year's recipients.

For those interested, pre-registration will be held Oct. 22 at Elborn College from noon to 1 p.m. and Oct. 24 from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the occupational therapy booth in the University Community Centre.
