About

During today's Western Challenge, we ask you to join us in our mission to positively impact our student-athletes! Support for Leatherneck Athletics can be made through gifts to the Leatherneck Club fund, or by making a sport-specific pledge.

 Gifts made to the Leatherneck Club fund will be used to enhance three key areas: 

1. Scholarships

2. Enhanced and improved travel for our teams 

3. Specialized computer software

In addition, each team is raising money to complete additional upgrades or provide their student-athletes with additional opportunities for success. From locker room projects, travel opportunities and nutrition upgrades to new equipment and training materials, each team has a special project they are looking to complete following the Western Challenge - all of which will positively impact the experience our student-athletes have during their time wearing the Purple and Gold.

With this in mind, we are calling on every Leatherneck everywhere to help us surpass our goals once again this year after our best Western Challenge ever in 2022.

Any gift made to Athletics during the Western Challenge will count as credit toward Leatherneck Club status for the 2023 year. 

Every gift counts, every gift helps!
