Duke Children's Charity Stripe Challenge
Thank you for supporting the second season of the Charity Stripe Challenge!
2022-2023 Charity Stripe Challenge
Dollars raised during the 2022-2023 season: $164,281
Free throws made during the 2022-2023 season: 475
In its second season, this fundraising initiative conbined the power and passion of Duke Men's Basketball with a highly engaging fundraising campaign to benefit Duke Children’s. The first challenge was held during the 2021-2022 season. At every men’s basketball home game during the season, a different Duke personality or celebrity guest walked out on the court with the game host, stepped up to the “charity stripe” and attempted a foul shot to help raise money for Duke Children’s. A made shot earned $1,000 and a missed shot was worth $500. Past year's shooters have included J.J. Redick, Mike Dunleavy, Steve Wojciechowski, Jabari Parker, Coach Mike Elko, Marshall Plumlee, and Grayson Allen.
The first Charity Stripe Challenge during the 2021-2022 season raised $107,836.30.
Charity Stripe Challenge Fan Pledge
Fans who couldn't be at Cameron Indoor Stadium last season were also able to join the Charity Stripe Challenge Fan Pledge! Fans could choose a fixed amount to pledge for every free throw made by the Blue Devils during the season, or could choose to make a one-time pledge to show their support. In the 2021-2022 season, 498 free throws were made. At the end of the season, the total pledges made a significant impact for the patients at Duke Children’s!
