Mines SAAC Raises Money For Make-A-Wish Foundation

GOLDEN – The Colorado School of Mines Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) raised over $1,000 as part of its Make-A-Wish campaign for the 2013-14 academic year, finishing with the second-highest amount raised of all institutions in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. 

Regis University led the conference with $1,131 raised over the time period, just $40 above Mines’ total of $1,091. Regis and Mines were the only two schools in the league to eclipse $1,000 raised during the 2013-14 campaign.

Mines' student-athletes raised the money behind the annual "We Bust Ours" t-shirt fundraiser, a "Pie in the Face" challenge with Metro State at the MSUD vs. Mines basketball night in February and a "Fast Pitch" fundraiser and tailgate at a Mines baseball and softball game.  

Wishes make life better for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. This simple, but powerful belief inspired the founding of Make-A-Wish. Make-A-Wish grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories, on average, every 38 minutes.
