SAAC Make-A-Wish

SAAC Make-A-Wish

Lynn University's Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and the Make-A-Wish Foundation's Southern Florida chapter have partnered together to raise funds in order to grant the wish of one special child with a life-threatening medical condition. In line with our values of Spirit. Service. Strength., Lynn University and its student-athletes are constantly looking for ways to make a difference in the community. Make-A-Wish of Southern Florida provides a great cause and the perfect outlet to make such a difference and spread our service to those less fortunate.

Lynn SAAC will raise funds throughout the 2016-17 academic year through our newly created pledge donation system. This system raises money through each of our sports by having donors pledge for every specific team achievement. For example, with the baseball team, if a donor pledges $1 for every home run and at the end of the season the team has hit 50 home runs, the donation would come out to $50.  Below is the complete list of each sports achievement a donor can pledge towards.

Please complete our form below to make your pledge for this wonderful cause. Together with Make-A-Wish of Southern Florida, we can make a wish come true for a child with a life-threatening illness. We need to reach $5,000 in order to achieve our goal and sponsor a child's wish. Help us make a difference and spread the spirit and strength of Lynn athletics through our service. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Lynn SAAC
