Purple Pride Challenge


Feb. 15-17, 2013

Support Our Sports through the Crusader Athletics Fund!


A group of loyal and generous Holy Cross alumni have initiated the Purple Pride Challenge in an effort to instill pride and spirit in Holy Cross Athletics.  This group of dedicated Crusaders will match gifts made to the Crusader Athletics Fund during Winter Homecoming weekend. This is your chance to demonstrate your pride in Holy Cross Athletics!

Alumni, friends and family will have the chance to increase their donation’s impact during this three-day challenge. The first $250 of each gift made to the Crusader Athletics Fund will be matched. Our goal is to raise $50,000 for Holy Cross Athletics, which will then be matched by the challenge pool with another $50,000.

Here’s how it works.

Make a gift between 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 15 and 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 17 to count in the challenge.
