2021 Beaver Stadium Run & Fun!
Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA) is excited to announce that the 12th Annual Paterno Family Beaver Stadium Run, presented by Sheetz, will be a virtual event this year, held from Sunday, April 18th to Sunday, May 9th! The event will offer a Virtual Run (5K run or 2 mile walk) and a new Virtual Fun component that will allow participants to choose their favorite exercise or activity to engage in for 30 minutes. Whether you choose to Run or engage in a little Fun, all proceeds benefit thousands of individuals with intellectual disabilities in Pennsylvania through the transformative power of sport.
During a typical year, the Beaver Stadium Run is hosted by Penn State University on Blue White Weekend and invites more than 3,500 runners to move through Penn State’s scenic campus, concluding the course by racing through the Beaver Stadium Tunnel and onto the Nittany Lions’ home turf to “finish at the fifty!”
While this year will look a little different, we are excited to see everyone lace up their sneakers and log their miles or complete their exercise activity for our athletes! Visit StadiumRun.org to learn more.
For this year's event we are asking everyone to:
- REGISTER as a Virtual Run or Fun participant
- RUN/FUN at any time from April 18th to May 9th
- RAISE funds and event awareness by sharing your experience with us via social media using #VirtualBSR
