NSU Day of Champions
Saturday, April 21, 2018
In 2017, over 150 Northern State University athletes and coaches spent a labor intense day working for non-profits, communities, and schools, monetarily contributing $25,000 worth of labor. Aaron Schultz, Executive Director of the United Way of Northeastern South Dakota and Josh Moon, NSU Athletic Director, and Terri Holmes, Compliance Coordinator/Senior Women's Administrator, serve as Co-Chairs of the event. The United Way of Northeastern South Dakota spearheaded the event finding 12 projects based on need and merit.
A big thank you goes to the Aberdeen Sertoma Club and Target of Aberdeen who sponsored food for the athletes on the day of the event. Another big thank you goes out to Eide Bailly and Twist Cone for giving proceeds of ice cream sales for the day to help fund project materials costs. We want to thank Ride Line for providing transportation for the athletes. Last but not least thank you to Dakota Broadcasting, Hub City Radio, Aberdeen American News, and Mayor Mike Levsen alongside the City Council for the great publicity leading up to the event.
