WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A substance-free program offers an alternative for Purdue students during Grand Prix week. The 14th Grand Alternative kicked off earlier this week. This year’s event includes a 5- K.. a Hawaiian Luau and a Root Beer and Karaoke night.

Event coordinator Jennifer Sula said the event is great way to have a positive impact on the community.

“Grand Alternative provides a way for students to get involved in a positive and safe way in Grand Prix Week. I think it can be a week that is a positive impact on campus and in the community and Grand Alternative showcases that,” said Sula.

Grand Alternative is open to all students and concludes Sunday.
