    The varsity team with the highest percentage of participation this fiscal year and the team with the largest percent increase in participation from the previous year will each win $1,000 for their varsity team.
  • How do you participate?
    All you need to do is donate any amount to a fund of your choice, which can include your team's designated fund at GVSU. Every former varsity athlete who makes a gift between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015 will be counted toward the challenge.
  • How does your participation help your Grand Valley varsity team?
    This challenge provides all of our former athletes with a great opportunity to get involved. By making a donation of any amount and encouraging your former teammates to do the same, you can have a meaningful impact on your team's chance to win $1,000 to meet their athletic needs in the future.
