Ten for Ten: Another Win for Student-Athletes

Oct. 10 marked the end of the second annual Ten for Ten Challenge for student-athletes. Each year, the student-athletes learn about the importance of giving back to their programs and supporting the Eagle Club with a suggested $10 gift. This year featured a new “spotlight series” throughout the 10-day challenge, which highlighted the stories behind one current student and two young alumni who have given back to UMW Athletics.

Within the past two years, 337 individual student-athletes have made gifts through Ten for Ten – making them the largest group of students who give back to UMW. In the words of Softball Captain Kara Deppe ’19, “the money donated to our athletic programs is so helpful and very much appreciated by all of us!”
