RED AND BLUE FUND: Elevating our game
Imagine living the life of a Roadrunner student-athlete. Each week, they attend classes, study, practice and compete, work part-time jobs and volunteer. Despite receiving little-to-no scholarship assistance, they show Roadrunner Spirit and are committed to excellence in the classroom and on the field of play.
Roadrunners Athletics is currently only funded at 65% of the athletic aid permissible by the NCAA, creating a gap in program funding. Over the course of the last year, Roadrunners Athletics supporters jumped at the chance to become members of the newly developed Red and Blue Fund, paving the way for MSU Denver student-athletes to pursue a balanced athletic and academic experience.
Roadrunners Athletics’ inspiring history of athletic and academic achievements is dependent on this support.
The Red and Blue Fund allows donors to make a direct impact on the sport of their choice, help student-athletes elevate their game and provide the additional funds necessary to ensure student-athletes have access to high-caliber competition and a comprehensive academic experience.
Since joining the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference in 1996, MSU Denver student-athletes have achieved success in the form of 44 RMAC Tournament championship wins, 43 regular-season championships and 105 NCAA championship appearances. Additionally, 16 student-athletes have earned Academic All-America honors and five have been named national players of the year.
With your help, Roadrunners will continue to find success on and off the field of play.
Show your Roadrunner Pride today and join us in our mission to transform the lives of student-athletes, develop future leaders and be recognized as the premier Division II athletic department in the nation.
