Imagine if you didn’t know where your next meal was coming from. For 1 in 5 kids in Southwest Virginia, that’s not theoretical. That’s just reality.
Hall of Fame Coach Lou Holtz of Notre Dame once said, “There’s never a right time to do the wrong thing. And there’s never a wrong time to do the right thing. Just do what’s right.” Coach Lou, Alumni, and friends proudly announce the “Alumni and Friends Charity Challenge.” The fundraiser begins September 19, 2018 and ends on Game Day October 6th, 2018 when the Irish battle Southwest Virginia’s hometown team for the first time in Blacksburg, Virginia.
