4 Day and 400 Donors!

Today marks Day 4 of the Purple Knight Challenge and we have well over 400 donors! Thank you to all of our donors and advocates for getting us off to a roaring start!

You've helped us raise nearly $25,000 for teams, showing our student-athletes that they have an incredible community of Purple Knights supporting them.
