Panther Packs delivered to students!

August 25, 2016

Due to the generosity of donors in last fall's Panther Pack fundraising campaign, every student in Pitt's Athletic Training Education Program received their very own Panther Pack today!   Panther Packs were distributed at the conclusion of the 2016-2017 Athletic Training Student Orientation (pictured below with their Panther Packs).  These packs will help enhance each students' clinical experience by providing them with the tools necessary as they practice to become a proficient health care provider.  

Thank you once again to everyone who helped make this project a success.  H2P!

Thank you to all our supporters!

December 28, 2015

We did it!  We met our goal of raising $6400.  Achieving our goal means that, beginning in the fall of 2016, every student in Pitt's Athletic Training Education Program will be provided with their very own Panther Pack.  The athletic training students are extremely grateful for all the ATEP alumni and supporters who made achieving this goal possible.

2016 is going to be a great year!


There is still a way to give.

Although our campaign has concluded, if you would still like to make a donation to the Panther Pack Project, you may always do so here.


On the home stretch!

November 20, 2015

We have just 12 HOURS TO GO, and we are SO close to our goal! We are at 84% of our overall goal and we know we can make it!  If you're reading this, chances are you've already made a financial contribution to this campaign. For that, we're incredibly grateful. YOU are making the Panther Packs possible! Thank you for your generous support - we're on the home stretch of this project!

There is one last thing we will ask of you at this point, if you haven't already:

Please share our campaign with your friends, your family, and your colleagues. Send emails and post to your Facebook and Twitter accounts.

2 Weeks Left!

November 05, 2015

There are 2 weeks remaining in our campaign! We are almost at 50% of our goal and we know we can make it with your support.

When asked what the Panther Pack would mean to her, Jennifer Xu, Class of 2017, said: 

"The Panther Pack would have helped me at the beginning of the program so that going into clinical without any AT classes I'd be able to practice things like goniometry and taking blood pressures. I'd be able to get ahead in my education. I'd also have my own pack to take on the field for games and it would make me feel like I'm really prepared for anything."

We have amazing supporters!

October 30, 2015

Thank you to everyone who has donated! In just a little more than 2 weeks, we have reached nearly 50% our $6,400 goal. With 21 days left to go, we still need $3250 to achieve our goal.  We're confident that - together - we will do it!

Some of you may remember receiving your own pair of scissors as an AT student at Pitt and how that one tool gave you more confidence as you headed to the athletic training room every day. Imagine if you had your own set of tools and supplies that you used in both the classroom and clinical settings and were then able to take them with you as you advanced your career. We are asking for your help to make this project possible for the Pitt Athletic Training students.

Share our campaign with your friends, family, and colleagues - post our campaign page to social media, send personal emails, and bring up the campaign in conversation. We are thrilled with the amount of support so far and we know that with your help, we can achieve our goal!
