UNCW Statement re: Track and Field

Monday, June 01, 2015

We are pleased to announce that Save UNCW Track, in partnership with UNCW, has reached its fundraising goal, securing $255,781.59 in order to sustain UNCW's track and field program through the 2015-16 season. This was a terrific effort, and we would like to thank the donors who supported this endeavor, including the running community, our students, alumni, local business owners, corporate partners and the friends and family of our student-athletes. This was the first step toward preserving a future for this program; the next step is securing the funds necessary to renovate a facility worthy of hosting intercollegiate competition. UNCW and Save UNCW Track will continue to work together toward the goal of securing $1,000,000 by February 1, 2016, to preserve and renovate the track facility, which is of great importance to our campus and our community. This will require the identification of major donors capable of making gift commitments to fund the renovation. Today, though, we want to acknowledge the accomplishment of Save UNCW Track and their partnership with UNCW. We look forward to a successful 2015-16 track and field season.
