Lake Superior State University War Memorial Women’s Walk features teams of walkers raising money by collecting pledges and donations from family, friends and community members. To date, over $272,000 has been raised in support of women's athletics at LSSU! Participants take part in a walk/run around the campus of LSSU and, new this year, can also take part in a 5K run/walk. This visible show of support is the premier fund-raising events for LSSU Women's athletics.

Your participation in the Women’s Walk helps ensure that our female student-athletes continue to strive for excellence in the classroom, on the playing field and in our community.  You can register to walk online, download a form to mail in or donate directly to the program of your choice.
