Hurricane Club Surpasses 1,000 New Members

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Just three months into the calendar year, the Hurricane Club has surpassed its new member goal of 1,000 members for 2014. The Hurricane Club is well on pace to reach its overall goal of 7,500 members and has 5,130 active members so far this year.

The push is part of the overall #BuildingChampions campaign, which is in year two of the three year plan. Last year, the Hurricane Club set an all-time record for UM Athletics annual support with more than 6,900 members.

“Reaching 1,000 new members for the second straight year is a tremendous accomplishment for our program,” Associate AD for Development Jesse Marks said. “We need to continue to grow our membership base and expand our reach nationwide.”

“Each Hurricane Club member is truly #BuildingChampions for Hurricane Athletics. Thank you!” Marks said.
