Homecoming starts this weekend with Home Run for the Heart

Homecoming 2017 kicks off Sunday, Nov. 5, so clear your calendar, call your friends, buy your tickets, and get ready for a huge celebration with fellow Mavericks.

Start the celebration with Home Run for the Heart, a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. The rest of the schedule of events includes volleyball and basketball games, a street festival, a parade, a 5K walk and run, and the annual Distinguished Alumni Awards.

Volunteers are needed to work behind the scenes and ensure Maverick spirit is at an all-time high. Assistance is needed for the parade, chili cook-off, The Bash, and more. Volunteers will receive a long-sleeve commemorative Homecoming T-shirt. Register to volunteer. LEARN MORE.
