Luther College’s annual One Team Day returns Thursday, Nov. 16, for its fourth year to raise money to support Norse athletics.
Donors can support the specific teams of their choice. Funds raised will provide critical operating support, such as advanced technologies for training and recovery, top-tier equipment and uniforms, and quality travel and training experiences.
Gifts made on Nov. 16 will be matched dollar-for-dollar by more than $130,000 in matching funds pledged by One Team Day challenge sponsors. In 2022, Luther raised $310,000 from more than 1,100 donors on One Team Day.
The day-long event also includes the first-ever One Team Day Celebration, which is free and open to the public at T-Bock’s upstairs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The celebration includes complimentary appetizers and a cash bar.
“Every year, the athletics department looks forward to One Team Day because of the outpouring of support for Norse athletics from alumni, parents and friends,” said Renae Hartl, director of intercollegiate athletics. “One Team Day ensures that our coaches can provide competitive schedules and cutting-edge training equipment and technology for our student-athletes. We are grateful to everyone who supports our Norse athletes.”
