Top Dog Challenge
Truman State University Bulldogs vs. UIndy Greyhounds has been a GLVC throwdown for years but now it’s time to determine who is the Top Dog! Join the UIndy community as we compete against Truman State University to see which school has the largest impact in our communities. From Monday, October 5 through Saturday, October 24 we will be raising funds for three organizations: Make-A-Wish Foundation, Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, and Indianapolis Animal Care Services. Help us help our community and show Truman that Greyhounds are the Top Dog. Show your greyhound pride and support on social media using #topdogchallenge2020
Ways to Support:
Gifts of ANY amount can help us become the Top Dog in this competition. Both dollar AND supporter amounts will be calculated between the two schools. The President with a lower number of donors will wear the winning school’s apparel and post a picture on social media. The President with a lower number of dollars raised will send a gift basket filled with local treats to the winning President and will share on social media. Go Hounds!
Show your support for the challenge by purchasing a T-shirt while supplies last. The T-shirts are $10 each ($15 with shipping) and $5 of each sale goes to the challenge total. Faculty and Staff are encouraged to wear jeans, with their supervisor’s permission, when they wear their Top Dog T-shirt. Using the link above scroll down to the T-shirt option.
