TOWSON, Md. – With only four days remaining in the T-Club Alumni Athlete Challenge, Men’s Soccer has taken the lead with 21.1% of their alumni giving back.  Gymnastics is in second with 17.8% of alumni giving back to the program while Men’s Swimming is in a very close third with 17.1% alumni participation.  The challenge was announced on February 2 and will run through Friday, April 13.

Currently the Tiger Club has the most alumni-athletes giving back in the programs’ history with over 500 individuals giving back to Towson Athletics.

The goal of the challenge is to increase participation among former Tiger student-athletes contributing to the Tiger Club. Gifts to the Tiger Club can benefit the entire athletics program, a specific team, a capital project or athletic grants-in-aid.  All gifts to the Tiger Club are processed through the Towson University Foundation. 

Alumni will be competing to earn additional funds for their programs. The team that has the highest percent participation among their total alumni will receive a prize of $3,000 to supplement their budget, while the second place and third place team will receive $1,500 and $500, respectively.

All gifts of $25 or more donated since July 1, 2011 from alumni athletes to the Tiger Club count toward the challenge.  Points are awarded based on overall participation percentages for the each team, creating a competitive balance among all teams.  Please see the chart below for your sport’s participation percentage.

Every former varsity student-athlete contributing to Towson University Athletics receives a T-Club pin for their participation.  The T-Club exclusively recognizes former student-athletes giving back to help provide the necessary resources for current student-athletes to succeed in the class room and in competition.

Alumni that have already made contributions can still help secure their team a win by advocating among fellow teammates to join in the effort.

Gifts must be received by the close of business on Friday, April 13 to be included in the contest.
