Thanks to the thousands of runners/walkers, corporate sponsors, Franco Harris, the Sheetz Family, The Paterno Family and more that helped to make our 2018 Paterno Family Beaver Stadium Run a success! The Beaver Stadium Run, presented by the Sheetz family, returned to Penn State on Blue White Weekend for a ninth consecutive year.  More than 3,500 runners and walkers of all ages and abilities participated in a 5K run or 2 mile family fun walk on Sunday, April 22, 2018. The Run began in the vicinity of the Bryce Jordan Center on Curtin Road, moved through Penn State’s scenic campus, and concluded with runners racing through the Beaver Stadium Tunnel and onto the Nittany Lions’ home turf to “finish at the fifty!”

Proceeds from the Run benefit Special Olympics Pennsylvania and nearly 20,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities.  Every fundraising achievement will help us send more athletes to Summer Games! 

Congratulations to our 2018 Beaver Stadium Run Raffle Winner, John Sieminski from Pittsburgh, PA! His name was drawn during our Summer Games as the winner of a trip for 4 to watch the Nittany Lions vs Pitt Panthers on September 8, 2018.
