Organizers said this fundraising is crucial to the department.

“They wouldn’t be able to help fund the classrooms and get the equipment that they need and supplies to continue on with the great work that they do,” Jonathan Sasser of ETSU’s Campus Recreation said.

So far they’ve raised over $300. If you missed it this year, don’t worry, they plan to host it again next year the Sunday before Homecoming.
