Cycling fundraiser to help support students impacted by the coronavirus
We have seen and heard lots of encouraging stories about people helping people
during the coronavirus pandemic. Here’s another wonderful example.
Madison College School of Academic Advancement Manager Kevin Foley is
cycling more than 170 miles on Friday, May 15, in hopes of raising $10,000 for
the college’s student emergency support fund – which has already helped
hundreds of students with such things as food security, housing-related costs
and job loss during the coronavirus crisis.
"I felt like I needed to do something," said Foley. "And I want to look back at this time and feel like I did something to help someone.”
Foley is calling his fundraiser the Tour de Madison College, because he’ll be stopping at each of the college’s eight campuses during his journey.
Madison College serves more than 33,000 students throughout a 12-county district in south-central Wisconsin, offering nearly 180 diverse career programs, diplomas and certificates. Its mission is to provide open access to quality higher education that fosters lifelong learning and success in the communities it serves. Madison College is the second-largest institution in the Wisconsin Technical College System.
