 One Day Give 

October 9 marks the third annual “One Day Give” at Millersville University.

The One Day Give is an all-day event where participants may make a donation to Millersville University that will directly impact the lives of its students. Last year’s One Day Give helped raise $193,556.75 for scholarships.

Those who generously donate during the One Day Give will have the opportunity to decide how their pledge will benefit current and future students at Millersville.  Opportunies include the Impact Fund for student scholarships, the American Dream Ride Scholarship, athletics, the Ware and Winter Centers and more.

Running Events Impact Roads

 Various streets around Millersville University will be used for running events on two dates this fall.

On October 10, “Immerse International” will be holding a 5K run at 9 a.m. “Immerse International,” formerly known as Millersville International House, is home to students who study at MU while visiting from another country.

The race begins near the intersection of Herr Avenue and Landis Avenue and comes through campus before circling back to the start.

A one mile fun run will take place immediately following the 5k at 10 a.m. This race will also begin near the intersection of Herr Avenue and Landis Avenue.

And, on November 26 (Thanksgiving Day), the 43rd annual Turkey Trot will take place between 9 and 10 a.m. Proceeds from the race benefit running programs at MU and Penn Manor, along with food donations collected for a Millersville food bank.

The race begins at Highschool Avenue and goes through campus, ending near Penn Manor High School.
