The day before Michigan State and Michigan face off on the field for the nationally regarded football game, the two schools come together in support of a common cause: accessibility in higher education. Alex's Great State Race is run in memory of Alex Powell, a Spartan student and Wolverine patient. In celebration of his life, the Army ROTC cadets from the Spartan and Wolverine Battalions join together with Supreme Court Justice Richard Bernstein and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley to run the game ball from Ann Arbor to East Lansing. This day symbolizes Alex's strength and a partnership between two powerhouse Universities while supporting the Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities (RCPD) at MSU and the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) at U-M.
Join us in Ann Arbor for the launch at 4:30am at The Big House or in East Lansing at 1pm at Demonstration Hall for the Landing Ceremony.
