Questions and Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about Highlander10 Challenge.

What is the Highlander10 Challenge?

In honor of Radford University’s founding in 1910, the Highlander10 Challenge will host student-centered fundraising causes for 1 day, 9 hours and 10 minutes.  These projects will provide current-use funds across campus. During this initiative, the goal will be to bring together as many members of the Radford Family as possible to support important funds that make our students feel supported and included in their educational experiences; and help them build and maintain their own communities to become the best versions of themselves. The fundraising project with the most donors at the end of the challenge will receive an additional $1,000.
