Become a champion

Is there a project, program, or area of the University and its Medical Center that you feel passion for? Consider becoming a Champion to help spread the word about the campaign to others.

Champions lend their voice to a campaign by sharing their passion for the cause and reaching out to their networks on social media, email, phone, or whatever medium they are most comfortable with. When you share your personal appeal, and your meaningful connection to the cause, you will inspire others to give their support, too.

To Become a Champion for the University, please take the following steps:

1. Choose the campaign you wish to champion.

2. Click on the ‘Get your personal share link’ button in the ‘Become a Champion’ box on the right-hand side of the campaign page.
