Let's run away with it in OT!

When we surpassed 2,000 donors, members of the Athletics Committee of the Board of Trustees came forward and pledged to give $10,000 if we get to 2,500 donors!

Now, we are going for two! They have upped the ante and will give an additional $10,000 to challenge Crusader Nation to see how far we can go until noon, today!

                     Every gift helps us win โ€“ TOGETHER!
