Mark your calendars for Thursday, November 5, 2021. Valdosta State University Advancement, Alumni, and Annual Giving is hosting its first ever Giving Day. Money raised through this campaign goes to support the campus community and programs like the arts, student scholarships, and our student-athletes. We will post a link here on Giving Day if you’d like to support Blazer Nation.


A Giving Day 5k is being held in conjunction with the event. To take part, runners just need to register and then complete the race in their own time and their own location. Registration for the virtual 5k is now open with an initial registration price of $25. On October 18, the early bird registration ends and the registration price will increase to $35. Each person who registers will receive a free t-shirt, and if an additional donation is made the runner will receive a pair of V-State Crew socks to wear on their run.

If you take part in the virtual 5k, we want to see your pictures. Our hashtag is #BlazersGiveBig so please use that on social media so we can share our Blazer pride.

We aim at being able to get people their socks, t shirts, etc. prior to giving day so we can encourage them to wear their v state attire on their run and snap a good picture for Instagram captioning it with our hashtag #BlazersGiveBig.
