Phil the Pill Commemorative 5K Bib

Join College of Pharmacy mascot, Phil the Pill, for a virtual 5K run/walk!

 Dean Philip Hall will run 5 kilometers while wearing “Phil the Pill” to show his support of LOWVELO, a virtual run/walk/cycle event that raises money for cancer research at MUSC Hollings Cancer Center and to raise money for the for the MUSC College of Pharmacy.

The MUSC pharmacy family is invited to join in on the fun – no costume required! Print a bib, then share pictures of your run or walk using hashtags #PhilthePill5K and #WEareMUSCpharmacy (don't forget to tag @musccollegeofpharmacy).

Go the extra mile by making an online gift to the MUSC College of Pharmacy or by starting a Facebook fundraiser for the College of Pharmacy to get friends to “sponsor” your 5K!
