SUVC Salutes Camaraderie 5k Run/Walk

Seattle University Veterans will  SALUTE our veterans in honor of Veteran’s Day. This event will be to not only honor those who have served in the military, past and present, but to also support the Seattle University Veteran’s Community (SUVC), as well as, the Seattle Stand Down. We want to take this opportunity to introduce SUVC to the Seattle University greater population, while also bringing together all of the active duty, reservists, veterans, ROTC, spouses, and dependents that may be alumni, current students, or staff here on campus.

When: Sunday, November 6, 2016 

Time: 10am—1pm 

Where: Seattle University, Student Center Room 160 

Flag presentation ceremony will be done prior to 5k kickoff. 5k Walk/Run will be done on a course on the SU main campus. No registration required. No official time kept. For more information contact Tom Hove @ hovet@seattleu.edu


*Comrade Linda Fairbank will have a booth at the event if anyone would like to help please contact her.

We will apply a second coat of paint inside the Hall while installing the new drapes and rods.

Also the Seattle Stand Down will be using the hall as a space to store their supplies for their upcoming event in December. We will build shelves and bins to give the Stand Down proper space to support the Veterans they serve.

It’s time to Report for Duty with your new Platoon!
