Tuesday, December 3 is “Giving Tuesday” and in the spirit of the season, the Miner Athletic Club will be raising $15,000 for a UTEP Athletics Van.
“People are always asking me about how they can make a difference for UTEP Athletics,” Director of Athletics Jim Senter said. “This is an example of how any donation, big or small, can positively impact our department. I hope you’ll consider contributing to the UTEP Athletics Van initiative through our pick-a-project program.”
The van will support each of the Miners’ 16 Division I athletic teams while providing safe and comfortable travel to and from practice, competition, doctors’ visits and community events.
The van will also be used to assist with recruiting.
Fans can donate at six different levels – Prospector ($25), Oredigger ($50), Paydirt Pete ($100), Bronze Bar ($250), Silver Spade ($500) and Golden Pick ($1,000) – or contribute any desired amount.
For more information on the project, or to donate, fans can visit the website for more information.
The Miner Athletic Club serves as the fundraising arm for UTEP Athletics, providing scholarships and the financial resources necessary for UTEP student-athletes to compete at the highest levels and to achieve educational excellence.
