A number of Clemson University student-athletes will be extending their Thanksgiving holiday festivities a few extra days this year to participate in a thank-a-thon. The Clemson Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be conducting the Third Annual Thank-a-Thon to thank the many IPTAY donors who make their athletic scholarships possible. The event will occur on Monday, November 30 and Tuesday, December 1 from 6-9 p.m.
Over 65 student-athletes from various sports have volunteered to take one hour shifts to personally call each donor to thank them for their generosity in supporting Clemson University Athletics and to let them know that their generosity is not going unnoticed.
Senior rower Meredith Razzolini coordinated the event this year and her thoughts on the event summarize the heart of the Clemson family; “I am thankful for the donors because not only has their contribution to the university affected me, but it has also helped several others, which includes my teammates and student-athletes from other teams. Clemson is a great university and we have a great and supportive athletic department, and with the help of our donors, we continue to get better and better every year.”
