2017 Lyons Athletic Club Strength in Numbers Challenge

2017 Lyons Athletic Club Strength in Numbers Challenge

Wednesday May 10 through Wednesday, May 24

The Wheaton College Department of Athletics is set to begin its fourth Lyons Athletic Club (LAC) Strength in Numbers Challenge.  This challenge is a competition between varsity teams in an effort to achieve the highest alumnae/i rate of participation. 

 Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous student-athlete alum donor, the top performing teams will receive additional prize money.

Prizes:

  • $1,500 to the team that achieves the highest alumnae/i rate of participation.
  • $500 to the team that finishes with the second highest alumnae/i rate of participation.
  • $500 to the team that has the highest number of alumnae or alumni who make their first ever gift to the LAC or a team.


How can I help make a difference? 
It’s really simple.  Click on the link below to make your gift.  The size of your gift doesn’t matter – for this challenge, your participation is most important.  Then email, call or text your teammates and ask them to follow your lead and make their own gift.  

DONATE TO WHEATON ATHLETICS HERE!
