THE GOAL

2,022 Loggers Come Together for Puget Sound

LOGGER DAY CHALLENGE is a day of pride and philanthropy. It is an opportunity to come together to support each other, our community, and the university we love. To be a Logger is to be part of a community that is resilient, innovative, passionate, and above all, caring. Join us to celebrate what it is to be a Logger, the individuals who make-up Logger Nation, and all things Puget Sound. Once A Logger, Always A Logger!

Lunch Hour Challenge!


What a start to the day! Can all of our Loggers on their Lunch Hour rally to hit 650 donors by 1pm PST?!?! If 140 Loggers have water with lunch and donate the $4 cost of a drink, we'll hit 650 donors and raise $560 for Puget Sound and with today's $100,000 Match, that goes twice as far!  If everyone jumped to $10, $1,400 would turn in to $2,800! That's pretty impressive over a lunch hour!
