The Paterno Family Beaver Stadium Run for Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA) presented by the Sheetz family returned to Penn State on Blue White Weekend for a seventh consecutive year.  More than 3,000 runners and walkers of all ages and abilities participated in a 3 mile run or 2 mile family fun walk at Penn State University on Sunday, April 17th – raising more than $426,000.  Thank you to those of you who joined us and “finished at the fifty!” 

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 Summer Games!  Make a commitment today and change a life forever!
