Student-Athletes Rise Up to the Ten for Ten Challenge!

Current student-athletes will once again participate in the Ten for Ten Challenge for the second year in a row. Ten for Ten is a fundraising campaign designed to educate student-athletes about the importance of giving back to their programs, supporting the Eagle Club, and demonstrating their leadership among the student body.

The goal is for student-athletes to each contribute a suggested $10 donation to their programs and reach 100% participation within their teams during Oct. 1-10. Last year’s fundraising challenge was a huge success, with 277 student-athletes giving back, 11 teams reaching 100%, and 20 out of 22 varsity sport programs participating in the campaign overall.

Stay tuned for the results of this year’s challenge, which will be announced after Oct. 10!
