Battle of the Valleys to benefit Grand Rapids Public Schools

Posted on

For the eighth year in a row, Grand Valley State University will compete head-to-head with Saginaw Valley State University in a weeklong battle to raise the most donations for a selected charity. Proceeds from this year’s competition will be donated to the Student Advancement Foundation, an organization that raises funds for Grand Rapids Public Schools.

Battle of the Valleys will take place November 8-13 and consists of a variety of events and fundraisers. The winner will be announced at half time during the Grand Valley vs. Saginaw Valley football game at Saginaw Valley’s University Center Saturday, November 13. 

Since Battle of Valleys began in 2003, Saginaw Valley has taken the trophy four times and Grand Valley has taken it three times. The event, sponsored by Grand Valley’s Student Senate, has raised more than $100,000 for local charities.
