WHY WE RACE - The team is raising money for the Student Support Fund which is distributed by GVSU Financial Aid and provides scholarships to students who are facing extreme financial circumstances which could keep them from completing the final requirements to obtain their degree. This fund truly helps students get to the graduation finish line. MAKE A DONATION TO THE TEAM
RACERS - This team is all-inclusive. Laker alumni, friends, family, students, faculty and staff will run/walk/wheel on behalf of Grand Valley State University as a part of the Laker for a Lifetime Team.
