Take the Jon Block Challenge for Washington University Athletics
St. Louis, Mo., June 5, 2012 – Jon Block, Class of 1982 and men’s tennis letterwinner, is challenging his fellow alumni letterwinners to support Washington University Athletics. Block will make a gift of $10,000 to the Department of Athletics if 350 more donors join the W Club by June 30, 2012. And we need you to participate!
A gift–no matter the amount-–puts us closer to earning this generous $10,000 gift. When you join the W Club, you help give current student-athletes access to all the opportunities you enjoyed as a Bear–exceptional coaching staff, new equipment and uniforms and travel to competitions.
“My gift to the W Club reflects the tremendous respect I have for the dedication required to succeed as a scholar-athlete. I commend the superb WUSTL athletic department, especially the top notch men’s tennis program which has risen to national prominence following their 2008 NCAA Division III championship performance,” said Block. “My support of this Challenge dovetails superbly with The Jon Block Group’s ongoing corporate commitment of sponsoring promising tennis and road racing athletes. I urge you to join me in rewarding the enthusiasm, desire and hard work of all WU athletes by making a donation to the W Club.”
Be one of the 350 new supporters of Washington University Athletics. Please make your W Club gift by June 30 at: https://gifts.wustl.edu/GiftForm.aspx?brd=Athletics.
