Days Hours Minutes Seconds

The Cougar Challenge is Clark’s first athletics focused fundraising challenge! The original goal was to reach 324 donors to match the 324 athletes of our varsity rosters and as of an hour ago that goal was met! But things are just heating up...

Now that we've reached our initial goal, it's time for the real competition to begin.

The men’s and women’s team that achieves the most participation (highest number of donors) during the 7-day period will each receive an additional $250 to their team's fund provided by Carol Bowen '75 (women's rowing).

We have 324 varsity athletes who work hard every day at their respective sport and in the classroom to make sure Clark Athletics and the University are held in the highest regard, but they need help in order to succeed. By making a gift to your favorite team, you’re giving students like Caitlin ’21 the ability to reach their full athletic and academic potential.

“This support will mean so much for my team and I. We’ll be able to train with better equipment, as well as being able to travel to extremely competitive tournaments which will grow our game immensely,” says Caitlin.  

Do you have a favorite team? Make sure they’re winning by making a gift to their team AND spreading the word. Sign up to be a challenge advocate by clicking on the “advocate” tab. By sharing the information to your contacts through email and social media, we’re able to reach even more Clarkies and athletic supporters!


(Coed teams like Swimming & Diving and Cross Country are eligible for either prize!)
