SVSU students hosting fire truck pull, dodgeball game for Battle of the Valleys fundraising

Saginaw Valley State University students are engaged in a number of fun events as part of this year’s Battle of the Valleys fundraising competition.

One new event this year is a fire truck pull being held today (Thursday, Sept. 28) beginning at 6 p.m. on University Drive (between lots J2 & J3). Teams of 10 will compete to see who can pull a fire truck 40 feet in the fastest time.

A dodgeball tournament is scheduled Wednesday, Sept. 27 from 6:30 to 10 p.m. in Hamilton Gymnasium.

All proceeds from these events and other activities will benefit the Mustard Seed, a Saginaw shelter that helps women and their children move from homelessness to self-sufficiency.

SVSU students annually compete against their counterparts from Grand Valley State University to see who can raise the most money for charity. For more information, visit
