Athletics alumni compete with each other off the field
The results are in from the Athletics Alumni Giving Challenge, held Sept. 12-30 to increase giving participation among former Binghamton student-athletes. Men’s lacrosse received the $5,000 first-place prize with 42 percent of its alumni making gifts as part of the challenge. Men’s golf earned second place with 27 percent participation ($2,000 prize). Wrestling received third place with 23 percent participation ($1,000 prize). First-time donors made 35 percent of all the gifts. More than 230 young alumni donors (Bearcats of the Last Decade) participated in the initiative, made possible by the generosity of William H. Groner ’77.
