Let's DASH, GOLD Phins! Make a gift of any size and tell your friends to join you and celebrate Dolphin Dash! If we get 100 GOLD Phin alumni to participate in our Dolphin Dash Challenge, each donor will receive a Jacksonville University coffee traveler mug as our way of saying thanks! Even better? One lucky winner will be selected at random to receive an iPad Mini!

The Results Are In, GOLD Phins!

The results are in! In just five days, 6,398 alumni, students, families, friends, and fans from all over the world came together in record numbers to raise $2.4M during Dolphin Dash, and fuel progress that will make an immediate impact on Jacksonville University.

115 GOLD Phins supported our students during a historic week of giving. Thank you for giving forward! As promised for surpassing the goal of 100 GOLD Phin donors, we'll be sending you a stainless steel coffee traveler as our way of saying thanks. And congratulations to Darion Diasgranados '11 from Dallas, TX for winning the drawing for the iPad Mini!

Dolphin Dash supercharges dollars into change and drives students to power forward and inspire innovation. Thank you to our Dolphin Family for your unparalleled support. We can't wait to show you all we achieve.
