Join the Athletic Training Student Challenge
NATA
Your college/university athletic training club has a unique opportunity to contribute to the NATA Research & Education Foundation through the Athletic Training Student Challenge, and you get to determine how your gift will be used! As an ATSC participant, your donation can be made to the 2015 Annual Fund, to help the NATA Foundation with important initiatives like education, mentorship, research and scholarship programs. Or your school can elect to designate its donation to go directly to one of our NATA Foundation research or scholarship endowments that hasn't yet been fully funded. Not only will this help the endowment get closer to completion, the student club will be part of history by contributing to a research or scholarship that will be granted in perpetuity. Last year's efforts raised more than $9,000 for the NATA Foundation's annual fund and endowment program. We're hoping that, with your help, the 2015 challenge will be even bigger and better!
