Save ECU Swimming and Diving

The legendary ECU Swimming and Diving Team was recently cut from East Carolina Athletics. We have started this fundraising campaign to cover the operating costs of saving the program. After meeting with an outside consultant, with experience in saving college sports programs, the estimated cost for the campaign will be $30,000. Money raised will go towards T.V. and newspaper ads, commercials or press related appearances, fundraising efforts, and legal fees. A portion of proceeds will go to the Pitt County Special Olympics, a charity near and dear to the hearts of the ECU Swim and Dive team. If we cannot save ECU Swimming and Diving then all remaining proceeds will go to Pitt County Special Olympics. This is a devastating blow to a team with a rich cultural history and a decades long resume of winning. We are now in a race against time to save our program. Help us save one of the winningest teams on campus. Thank you in advance for your support. Loyal and Bold, Purple and Gold, We are the Pirates of ECU.
