2016 Pirate Pride Challenge

Feb. 10, 2016


The Pirate Pride Challenge is a bracket-style fundraising contest between all current and former student-athletes to help their teams. Every two weeks, teams will be matched up against another team, and compete for greater participation rate from all current and former Student-Athletes. It began on February 6th, the night of the Pirate Varsity Club event, and run through April 3rd. Statistics are cumulative throughout the PPC.

Additionally, there will be a wildcard region created for the 2nd round (February 22 - March 6) for all teams that did not initially advance. The 6 ‘wild card’ teams will compete against one another for participation rate to advance to the final four.

Within that time we ask all former student-athletes to make a minimum donation of $25 by visiting www.piratepridechallenge.com, mailing or calling in a donation to Pirate Blue. Once completed, please make sure to get your old teammates to do the same and your sport will hopefully be the champion of the Pirate Pride Challenge. This challenge is not limited to former Pirate letter winners. If you are a current Seton Hall student-athlete, you can make a $1 gift to participate and help your team win!
