Swimming and Diving Locker Room Renovation Project

 

  • - - - - - November 20 Update - - - - -

CSU Swimming & Diving family members, friends and alumni have now committed $100,000 in leadership gifts, $48,000 in locker sponsorships and over $7,000 in donations toward the Locker Renovation Project. THANK YOU to all our contributors, especially those who increased their original donations to “Extra Miler” level.

Please help us finish the “Extra Mile” campaign strong by sponsoring one of the remaining 19 lockers.

By doing so TODAY you will help make the "Wally Morton Locker Rooms" a realty, honoring Wally's 4 decades of service to our team, the university, Cleveland and the international world of swimming.

Here's how you can help:

  • Sponsor a locker for $1,650
  • Reach out to other friends, family and teammates to jointly sponsor a locker
  • Personally contact five others to encourage them to support this project.

Check out the latest design concept (just one of several options) for an individual locker plaque. Each sponsor or group will be able to provide customization for their own unique plaque.

 

Your gift will help support the renovation of our Men’s and Women’s Swimming & Diving locker rooms. As they stand today, the locker rooms have not been renovated since 1973 when the pool opened, making the spaces dated and not functional for today’s student-athletes.

The recent 2015 Heritage project for our swimming & diving teams, provided an amazing opportunity for connection!  The history of the swimming & diving program is on display for EVERYONE that walks into The Robert F. Busbey Natatorium. In the spirit of moving forward, we have an exciting opportunity for you to ‘Go The Extra Mile’!

There will be an opportunity to give money for all the swimming event distances (50-100-200-500-1000-1650), with an item identified as to the amount their donation will cover towards the locker room. These giving levels appear on the right side of our crowdfunding webpage. As you may know, 1650 represents a mile in swimming terms, which is why we are challenging you to ‘Go The Extra Mile’.

The locker rooms will be named for former CSU Swimming & Diving Coach, Wally Morton. His dedication and drive have helped countless CSU student-athletes over the years and we are excited to honor him with this project.

Thank you for your support and Go Vikes!
