1Day1SMC: National Superhero Day edition
1,363 Donors - $485,210 Donated

This year’s Gael Athletics 1Day1SMC will be focused on supporting the Galloping Gaels Fund (GGF), which funds student-athlete scholarships and Covid-19 mitigation efforts. All 16 programs have competed safely this season due to SMC’s Covid-19 testing protocols and mitigation efforts. The ability to consistently test has provided Saint Mary’s student-athletes the opportunity to compete safely while enjoying their unique SMC student-athlete experience, amidst a global pandemic. 

Thus far, Saint Mary's has administered 3,362 tests and received only 18 positives, a 0.5% positivity rate.

These protocols and efforts will cost the Athletic Department approximately $500,000. 

SMC Athletics has celebrated exciting success this year such as a nationally ranked Men’s Soccer team, a 10 run Softball comeback against Stanford, golfer Blake Hathcoat tying for first at Stanford's Goodwin tournament, and Men’s Basketball earning its 14th consecutive postseason appearance.

For this year's 1Day1SMC, we're celebrating Saint Mary's College superheroes in honor of April 28th being National Superhero day. Gael Athletics' superheroes include our student-athletes, trainers, staff, fans, and generous donors, who have helped propel such a successful 2020-21 athletic season. We hope you'll be our superhero today and contribute a gift and help our Gaels Rise!
