Cougar Pride Roar for 4

Cougar Pride members are the lifeline of Houston Athletics. Without the support of thousands of UH alumni, fans and friends, our student-athletes would not have the opportunity to succeed. Every year, our coaches go out and recruit the best and brightest student-athletes in the world. To date, the University of Houston Athletics department is the proud home to more than 400 student-athletes. These athletes our their heart and soul into every workout, competition, community service event and academic challenge to represent not only themselves, but the H-Town Takeover.

To celebrate their success, we ask that all alumni, fans and friends of Houston Athletics participate in the Cougar Pride Roar for 4 challenge. The 12-month challenge is to add 400 NEW Cougar Pride members to represent each out our student-athletes. In doing so, we hope this can provide and additional $400,000 to support student-athletes scholarships.



Here's how you can help:

There are over 253,000 University of Houston alumni, and over 60% of those alum still reside in the Houston area. Research shows that an individual is more likely to donate to a cause if someone they know encourages them to do so. That said, we urge you to recruit your family members, friends, roommates, fraternity brothers, sorority sisters, or even your next door neighbor to donate to Cougar Pride at the SAME GIVING LEVEL AS YOU DO! In doing so you will receive 5 additional priority points along with your new recruit. There is no limit on how many members you can recruit.

If all current Cougar Pride members recruit ONE NEW member, we would far surpass our goal! Thank you in advance for supporting our Mission to Build Champions for Life . . . Go Coogs!
