About the Madonna University Student Emergency Relief Fund
Proceeds from the Crusader 5K and Madonna Mile will benefit the Madonna University Student Emergency Relief Fund. This fund is distributed to students who need financial support in emergency situations. Madonna University is committed to offering students a liberal arts education in the Catholic and Franciscan tradition. If students face a situation preventing them from attending classes, completing assignments, or earning their degree, this fund is used to assist them if we can.

Please pre-register for the event online. On-site registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 27. For questions, please contact Student Life at 734-432-5426 or email
