Battle of the Valleys

A Brief History

‌For 11 consecutive years, students from Saginaw Valley State University and Grand Valley State University have seized the interest in the schools’ football rivalry and competed in a charitable fundraising competition known as “Battle of the Valleys."

A variety of entertaining fundraising activities make up the schedule for the week. Past fund-raising activities have included:

  • Traveling bake sale
  • T-shirt sales
  • Donation collections at campus intersections
