Saginaw Valley State University has continued a 10-year winning streak in its annual “Battle of the Valleys” fundraising competition with Grand Valley State University.  During the one-week event, SVSU AND GVSU compete to raise money for a charity each has selected. This year, SVSU raised $32,115 for the Mustard Seed Shelter of Saginaw, which serves homeless women and children. GVSU collected just over $17,017 for Laker Children’s Fund, which contributes to organizations that promote health and wellness for children.

The contest began Sunday, Sept. 24, and ended Saturday, Sept. 30.when final tallies were announced during halftime of a football game between the two schools on the GVSU campus in Allendale.

SVSU has won Battle of the Valleys  in 12 of the 15 competitions that have been held so far.
