More than 200 athletes have received Golf Classic awards, benefiting from extra financial support while training to represent Concordia in competitions.
“Whether it’s in reputation or a sense of community pride, Concordia gains in innumerable ways from the triumphs and successes of our student athletes,” said Carr.
Undergraduate Sara Parker says that winning a Concordia University Golf Classic Award for Student Athletes has allowed her to not only pursue her own ambitions but to help promote other women in sports.
“The award I was given has provided me with emotional and financial relief, due to my numerous engagements with school and sports. It has allowed me to focus on school, flag football and my clinical internship in athletic therapy without having to worry about the financial stress,” says the Concordia Flag Football Club president.
Golf Classic funds count towards the Campaign for Concordia: Next-Gen Now, the most ambitious fundraising campaign in the university’s history.
