Blue Raider student-athletes to raise money for UNO student-athletesOctober 19, 2005 · MT Media Relations
Members of the Middle Tennessee athletic department will be making contributions and ask that fans who attend the game and have the resources available to do the same. Blue Raider student-athletes will be contributing through taking up collections.
"There are still so many people who have been displaced and are struggling because of the effects of Hurricane Katrina," said Chris Massaro, Director of Athletics at Middle Tennessee. "We want to do everything we can to help student-athletes at a conference member school who have lost so much and still are not able to return to their school. It's a tough time for everyone and we want to do everything we can to assist."
The money collected will be given directly to University of New Orleans and its student-athletes.
Checks should be made payable to the BRAA Hurricane Relief Fund.
