Hundreds of alumni, friends, fans, faculty, staff, supporters and students came together in an impressive show of support for Boise State University’s students and programs during Bronco Giving Day.
A total of $328,395 came in during the 36-hour campaign. Donations benefit a number of student scholarship funds and initiatives.
Nearly 1,000 people contributed to the overall campaign. That included Boise State faculty and staff who gave 647 times for a total of $34,299.
The College of Health Sciences raised money to go towards the purchase of a new hardworking Hal; a High-Fidelity Manikin that is high-tech, life-size, breathing, blinking, talking simulated patient that will contribute to the education of thousands of students in the college’s Simulation Center.
The manikins within the Simulation Center help create a safe environment where nursing, radiologic sciences, and respiratory care students practice their skills. More than 400 students practice clinical care on these manikins each semester. As a result of Bronco Giving Day, all donations made will go towards a new manikin for the Simulation Center.
“The Boise State family answered the call and stepped up in a very impressive way during these 36 hours,” said Tony Roark, interim provost at Boise State. “I’m inspired and grateful for the show of support for our students, programs and projects. Thank you, Broncos!”
