On April 14, the Former Athlete Participation Challenge returns!  Last year more than 450 Hofstra athletes stepped up to help their team compete for the $10,000 grand prize.  NEW this year there is an additional $5,000 prize for the team that has the largest participation increase from last year's challenge.

Last year women's soccer captured the inaugural Challenge with 897 points.  Points are determined by the percentage of former athletes who join the Pride Club and there is a two-point bonus for making your gift online. 

Step up now and join the Pride Club online and receive three additional bonus points.  This offer is only valid for gifts received by 5 p.m. on April 14.
