Let's Go Red
Supporting Our Student-Athletes

Your support of Let’s Go Red! funds ensures that current and future generations of students continue to receive the opportunity to balance the rigors of academics with collegiate athletics.

Gifts to Let’s Go Red! help our men’s and women’s teams directly, supporting items like needed dollars to purchase specialized equipment, fund tournaments and invitationals, and team training trips. Donations also support athletic awards and banquets, provide maintenance and enhancements to weight rooms and other training facilities, and other needed items.

On 2Rπ Day, please consider showing your support for our student-athletes by making a gift to one of our teams!
