Once a Viking, Always a Viking: The Crowdfund for LU Athletics

Dear Lawrence Faculty and Staff Community,

The Vikings student-athletes, coaching staff, and I are humbled by the overwhelmingly positive response from the Lawrence community to Once a Viking, Always a Viking: The Crowdfund for LU Athletics. Thanks to the outpouring of generosity, we were able to smash through our initial goal of 255 donors and then eclipse our challenge goal of 500 total donors! We are still busy tallying the final gifts so please stay tuned for final numbers next week regarding overall donor total and the total amount of support generated for Vikings Athletics. (In the event that anyone missed a reminder message along the way, please know that the Crowdfund website and the link to make a gift are still live and accessible!)

We are so grateful for your support! We look forward to sharing the impact of your gift on our student-athletes over the coming months. As we work to pursue excellence in everything we field, it is our belief that our alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff, and community members will be pivotal partners in that very pursuit.

With sincere thanks from Alexander Gymnasium,

Christyn Abaray
Director of Athletics
