The annual KU Vets 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.
We dedicated the 2018 run to commemorate the Centennial of the World War I armistice, as well as all those who have served in our Armed Forces.
All proceeds from the Vets Day 5K support KU Student Veterans of America (SVA) chapter, the KU Veterans Alumni Network, and the Lt. Gen. William K. Jones Military-Affiliated Student Center.
The KU Alumni Association Veterans Network recognizes, honors, supports and celebrates those who have served, are serving and/or have an affiliation with the U.S. Armed Forces. Our work includes: hosting an annual events for the KU military-affiliated community and developing, funding, and supporting scholarship programs for veterans and their dependents.
