2013-14 Raise Your Game Challenge


Dear Former Rider Athlete:

Its time to Raise Your Game to the next level! In a partnership with Rider's Office of University Advancement, the Department of Athletics is once again issuing a challenge to all former athletes to participate in a fundraising effort that will directly benefit your sport.  For the fourth consecutive year, each Rider team will face off against each other to determine which team can generate the most participation from its former athletes. Points will be earned by each program based on gifts of at least $25.  To enhance the challenge, recurring gifts will generate even more points this year. For this challenge, gifts may be contributed from July 1, 2013-April 30, 2014. 

The Rider field hockey team has finished on top the last couple of years, but their first-place finish has been closely contested by the wrestling and swimming and diving teams. Your team needs help to get to the top this season! Don't let your teammates down as your support could help take them across the finish line. 
In addition to your generous support for your favorite athletics program, $12,000 in prize money will be divided amongst the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in this year's challenge.  

Gifts can be made over the phone, through the mail, or online at alumni.rider.edu/giveathletics.  Online gifts are encouraged and will generate additional points. If you have any questions about the challenge, please contact Steve Rudenstein, associate director of major gifts for athletics at 609-896-5291 or by e-mail at srudenstein@rider.edu.

Thanks for your support of Rider Athletics and our "Raise Your Game" challenge.  GO BRONCS!
