2015 Day of Remembrance: 3.2-Mile Run in Remembrance
Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 9am Virginia Tech's Campus
On this day, the Virginia Tech community reflects on the vibrant lives of the 32 students and faculty who were tragically taken from us on April 16, 2007. This community run/walk throughout the campus of VT strives to bring fellow Hokies together, to feel the support of the community, and to celebrate the lives of our friends and family members.
Commemorative race bibs and t-shirts will be provided to the first 5,000 who register.

8 Year Anniversary
As the eighth anniversary of the April 16, 2007 tragedy approaches, we are reminded that anniversaries often are accompanied by challenges. Students, staff, faculty, and other members of the Virginia Tech community, whether they were on campus or not, may find themselves confronted with unexpected feelings or memories that they may have thought were resolved or in the past. Although we have seen many examples of how our campus community has been resilient and many people will not need support on or around the Day of Remembrance, there will be services available for anyone who needs or wants to speak with a counselor. Visit the Day of Remembrance website for more details.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support Virginia Tech for the 2014 3.2 for 32 Remembrance Run/Walk. We had over 10,000 people.
