The UAB Department of Athletics is inviting fans and local businesses to make a pledge in support of Blazer Athletics. In addition to supporting the UAB Athletics Campaign, Blazer Boosters encourages fans to share their story as to why they support UAB student-athletes.
"There continues to be many exciting developments with UAB Athletics as our progress has gathered positive publicity," Director of Athletics Mark Ingram said. "We continue to gain extraordinary momentum, and the important work will make a difference in this great community."
Hatton Smith, Chair of the UAB Athletics Campaign Committee, is helping lead the charge. The UAB Athletics Campaign Committee has partnered with Blazer Boosters to raise unprecedented support over the last year.
"Birmingham is on the move and strong athletics programs will enhance the pride and visibility to UAB and Birmingham's vibrant growth," Smith said. "Join us as we continue to invest in a better Birmingham. Together we can make an impact on the future of UAB and this fantastic city."
During the Together We Are initiative, Blazer Boosters will feature videos of UAB Athletics Campaign Committee members as they share their story and encourage other alumni and friends to become involved and do the same. As donors unveil their own individual stories, be sure to utilize the #TogetherWeAre hashtag so your story can be captured and shared.
Blazer Boosters are alumni and friends of UAB who recognize the value of the student-athlete experience. Join the Together We Are initiative and help continue the momentum by filling out your pledge form here or making a one-time donation online here.

"The support from both the UAB and Birmingham communities has been incredible and impactful," Associate Athletics Director for Development Brad Hardekopf said. "Donors have given both passionately and generously, and together, we have a remarkable opportunity to enhance the student-athlete experience while providing a tremendous value to Birmingham."
