Veterans Day Run 5K

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. 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.
