"A Run to Remember" - This year we highlight the service of our Vietnam Veterans

The annual KU Veterans Day 5K, hosted by the KU Student Veterans of America and the Veterans Alumni Network, honors our past/present veterans and raises awareness of the roles veterans play in our university and community. The 5K begins and ends at Memorial Stadium, traveling through the KU campus past KU’s five war memorials.

 

New in 2016, a Virtual Run/Walk option is available as well for those who can't make it to the KU campus.

 

We dedicate the 2016 run to honoring our Vietnam Veterans. This year marks the 30th anniversary of KU's dedication of our Vietnam War memorial - the first on-campus commemoration in the nation. It honors 57 students and alumni who died or were declared missing. We also join the nation in commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, which extends from Memorial Day 2012 through Veterans Day 2025.

 

All proceeds from the Veterans Day Run support KU’s Wounded Warrior Scholarship Fund, the KU Student Veterans of America (SVA) chapter, and the new KU Student Veteran Center.

  • The KU Wounded Warrior Scholarship Fund provides recipients with the financial support necessary for their successful academic, personal and professional growth while attending our university.
  • The KU SVA chapter provides student-veterans with an excellent forum to connect with peers and provide a common voice/advocacy for student-veterans on campus.
  • The new KU Student Veteran Center is KU’s centralized resource for military-affiliated students to assist students with their transition from the military to campus, persistence to graduation, and transition from the university to the civilian workforce. The center, which will be located in Summerfield Hall, is scheduled to open January 2017.

We hope to see you out there!
