GRAND FORKS, N.D. – University of North Dakota Athletics Director Brian Faison announced today that the 2013 North Dakota Strong campaign raised $33,129.98 for cancer research. It is believed to be the largest charitable fundraiser ever initiated by the University of North Dakota Athletics Department.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated to Mayo Clinic for breast cancer research and will benefit the community of Grand Forks, including patients of Altru Health System, a proud member of the Mayo Clinic Health Network. 

“I want to thank our student-athletes, coaches, area retailers, Amazon.com and Altru Health Systems for making this year's North Dakota Strong fundraiser such a success,” said UND Athletics Director Brian Faison. “A great team effort, involving our sports teams and the community, resulted in the largest fundraising total yet for cancer research under the North Dakota Strong effort."

Donations were collected at various UND Athletics home events, as well as through Amazon.com payments, North Dakota Strong t-shirt sales at local retailers and a game-used men’s hockey jersey auction at UNDsports.com. Additionally, Amazon pledged and matched a gift of $5,000.

UND Athletics, Altru Health System and Amazon.com would like to thank all of the fans who participated in this tremendous cause.

An official check presentation will be made to Altru Health System during UND’s men’s hockey game against Northern Michigan on Friday, Dec. 13.
