Taking one for the team

Laughter could be heard throughout the Student Union as whipped cream pies were smashed in the faces of Wright State University administrators, faculty, staff and students.

Wright State Miracle Makers hosted Pi in the Face, a fundraiser benefiting patients at Dayton Children’s Hospital on March 14 in the Student Union Atrium.

“I really love to see everyone on campus come together because that’s what our organization is all about,” said Abby Adams, a senior management major and president of Miracle Makers.

Wright State Miracle Makers is a student-led organization that is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for Dayton Children’s Hospital. Since 2013, Miracle Makers has raised over $350,000 for Dayton Children’s Hospital with the help of fundraising events like Raiderthon, a 12-hour dance marathon held every spring.

President Sue Edwards, Ph.D., Director of Public Safety Kurt Holden and dozens of others volunteered to be pied in the face by their highest online bidder.

Gina Keucher, program director in the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership, said Miracle Makers has changed its focus to become a yearlong fundraising campaign for Dayton Children’s.

“Our goal this year is to raise $54,000 for Dayton Children’s,” said Keucher, who serves as an advisor for Miracle Makers.

The Pi in the Face event raised almost $500, which will be donated to Dayton Children’s during Raiderthon on April 9 in the Student Union Apollo Room. You can register for Raiderthon at wright.edu/event/raiderthon.
