DU's Women's Club Hockey Team Raising Money

(above) Click to enlarge Donation Form

The University of Denver's Women's Club ice hockey team is trying to raise $3,000 to expand their program and move towards becoming members of the ACHA within two years. With a world class hockey program like DU, its only natural that we should now build our women's club team to build interest in the sport.

DU Sophomore Larisa Clark is heading up the fundraising effort on behalf of the women's team. The team is participating in a skate-a-thon to raise money in a few weeks.

LetsGoDU has donated $300 to this great cause and we are looking for business and individuals who can assist us in raising the other 90%. If you would like to donate money, equipment or assist in this project email DG (email: dggoddard@aol.com). If you know of a business that might want to get involved or have friends that might donate drop us a line.

You can also enlarge the donation form above and print it out.

We're now up to $400 as someone just emailed a $100 donation.

This is a great idea. I'll send a small donation in the next day or so.

Another reader just emailed me and will be also sending $100. If you decide to contribute let me know so we can post the tally here.

We're up to $500. 1/6th of the way there. :-)

They beat someone else too... I think that school's official mascot is a Turkey or a Chickenhawk or something?

What's the deal with the skate-a-thon?

dggoddard said...

As far as the Skate-a-thon goes, it is taking place on April 23 from 6-8 at Magness Arena or Joy Burns if Magness ice is down.

The men's club hockey team has done this before and they have made great progress. The women will be skating for the complete two hours, as many laps as we possibly can so some people will be donating for each lap we skate.
