OAKLAND ATHLETICS HOSTS INAUGURAL THANK-A-THON
Student-athletes from all 18 intercollegiate sports participated in thanking athletic donors, corporate partners and alumni of their respective programs
ROCHESTER, Mich. -- Oakland University Athletics and the Golden Grizzlies Athletic Fund (GGAF), with volunteer efforts from student-athletes representing all 18 intercollegiate sports teams, participated in the first ever Student-Athlete Thank-A-Thon from November 27-November 29.
“Our donors, corporate partners, season ticket holders and alumni directly influence and impact the experience of our student-athletes,” said Assistant Athletic Director of Development Fleetwood Fleming. “That is why this event is so special, as it allows us to connect our student-athletes to our generous supporters to express our gratitude.”
Each night, student-athletes volunteered their time to make personal phone calls to athletic donors, corporate partners and alumni of their respective programs to thank them for their support. In total, more than 1,100 supporters of Oakland University Athletics were contacted.
