The 2019 Bulldog Challenge

March 17-31, 2019

We are challenging our student-athlete alumni and Bulldog community to make a gift to support UNC Asheville Athletics.

The Bulldog Challenge is back for year six, and this year is set to be bigger and better than ever! Teams will be competing for the most number of unique donors towards our $175,000 goal.

Your gift makes a direct impact by providing scholarships, tutoring and essential academic support that allows your Bulldogs to compete at the highest level.

Every dollar – and every donor – helps strengthen our student-athletes' experience. Give back during March 17-31 and help your team create the next generation of champions – on the court and in the classroom. 


Who will take home the Bulldog Challenge Champions Trophy?

The team with the most unique donors on March 31 will be crowned our 2019 Bulldog Challenge Champions.

Last year’s Bulldog Challenge was historic, raising more than $130,000 to support current programs and student-athletes. Women's Golf brought home the trophy with a record of 100 unique donors. 

We are counting on YOU to support your favorite athletics program and help us continue our winning streak!

Will Women's Golf claim victory again? You decide!


Bulldog Challenge LIVE: March 28 at 7PM

The Bulldog Challenge LIVE event is back! On March 28, we will go live on the UNC Asheville Bulldog Athletics Facebook page for one hour as each team competes for who can raise the most dollars

Tune in and get ready to watch your favorite team talk about their goals, compete in mini-challenges, and ultimately, end up in the water! The team that raises the most dollars will get to dunk their coach in the pool. You won't want to miss this!
