Dear Members of the Lawrence Vikings Athletics Family,
 
We are in unprecedented times. As campus shared earlier, in order to protect the health and safety of our community, Lawrence's leadership made the difficult decision to move to distance learning and cancel or postpone spring term activities.
 
For several months, we have been looking forward to our third annual Once A Viking, Always A Viking: Crowdfund for LU Athletics, slated for March 31–April 7, 2020. Unfortunately, we have made the decision at this time to postpone The Crowdfund for LU Athletics due to the uncharted and uncertain times our community is navigating. Our staff is devoting its attention and energy to responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Immediate support for our students who are most in need is critical in these challenging times.
 
THE LAWRENCE FUND - SUPPORTING OUR STUDENTS (SOS) EMERGENCY FUND:
 
We have created The Lawrence Fund Supporting Our Students Emergency Fund. It supports immediate student needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can make a gift today and directly help LU students with the implementation of the newly created distance-learning model, food, travel, housing, and other unexpected expenses.
 
We are also still committed to building an eventual Crowdfund that invites the Viking community to come together and tangibly impact our student athletes' experiences.
 
CROWDFUND NEXT STEPS:
  • We will be selecting a new date for our 2020 Crowdfund for LU Athletics later this year once we have a better grasp of how the months ahead will unfold.
  • Once a new date is set, we will let you know. Stay connected to our Athletics website, our social media channels, and our coaches' e-newletters for an update.
  • Giving to Vikings Athletics remains open within the current Be the Light! Campaign. Gifts can be made here or by contacting Andrew Borresen, Assistant Director of Athletics Giving at 920-832-7486 or andrew.borresen@lawrence.edu.
Thank you for being a part of our Lawrence Athletics community. Thank you for your understanding in this unprecedented time. And thank you for personifying the hallmark of what it means to be a Lawrence Viking – selfless service & sacrificial leadership to community amid adversity. 
 
The world needs us, Vikings.
 
Yours,

 Christyn Abaray Signature
