Congrats to Engineers Without Borders for earning the Best Fundraising 2017-2018 Student Organization Awards & Recognition (SOAR) award! They were recognized at the SOAR ceremony on April 25, 2018 for their accomplishments.
As one of the team members shared, “This year was our most successful run yet. With 91 registered participants, we had many local sponsor firms come and run with us, as well as friends and family, and people from the neighborhood. We raised $6.5k that will go directly to our projects and their construction/material costs due to ASU’s support for student organizations. Additionally, we were able to raise awareness of what we do here at EWB to more students on campus and people in the community through announcements during the run and presentations from some students.”
As one of the team members shared, “Our event was so successful this year thanks to the 40 volunteers that we had help to organize the event, and the sponsorship and support from four local civil engineering firms, as well as Friends of Civil Engineering at ASU (FOCE). Of course we can’t forget everyone who came out and ran!
This award earned the organization $300 in funding that will go toward organization needs.
