Blue-White weekend, while known for the annual spring football matchup, will also see the baseball team host Northwestern for a three game series beginning Friday, April 21. First pitch is slated for 6:30 PM with fireworks to follow the game. You can purchase tickets HERE. Sunday, April 23 will feature the Paterno Family Beaver Stadium Fun Run.

The 8th-Annual Paterno Family Beaver Stadium 5K and 2 Mile Family Fun Walk, presented by the Sheetz Family will be held on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at Penn State University during Blue-White Weekend to benefit Special Olympics Pennsylvania. Proceeds from the Run benefit Special Olympics Pennsylvania and nearly 20,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Every fundraising achievement will help us send more athletes to State, National and World Games. So make a commitment today to change someone's life forever! Be sure to share your experience by using #StadiumRun on any social media platform.

New This Year!

BE A VIRTUAL RUNNER OR WALKER

If you can’t make it to State College on April 23rd to participate in-person at the Annual Beaver Stadium Run for Special Olympics PA, but still want to get involved by fundraising and/or being part of a team, register today as a Virtual Runner/Walker! Join the movement toward making this world more inclusive by fundraising through our new Virtual Runner/Walker program.

What is Virtual Running/Walking?

Virtual running/walking is a way to participate that can be done at any location, any time, and at any pace at the distance of your choice (3.1 mile run or a 2 mile fun walk). You can walk, jog, use the treadmill, run outside, or you can participate in another "real-world" race. It's completely up to you! You can run your race at your own pace wherever and whenever you like. However, we recommend you do your virtual run/walk between April 1st and April 30th to coincide closely with the official Beaver Stadium Run on April 23rd. Be sure to share your experience by using #VirtualBSR on any social media platform!
