Helping Us Advance How We Live, Work & Play
We did it! The first “Stand-Up and Holler: Gator Nation Giving Day” was held on Tuesday, February 26, 2019. On this day, Gators from around the world donated to various causes across UF and in support of the College of Health & Human Performance.
A goal of 5,000 gifts for UF and 200 gifts for HHP were both shattered. In total, the university collected over 11,000 gifts and HHP collected 219 gifts. Gators came through in flying colors! Your generosity showed you were #AllForTheGators.
Alumni donations are factored into the U.S. News and World Report Best University Ranking and participation in fundraising will help UF’s goal of becoming a top five public university.
Below are a few highlights from HHP alumni, including a special video of Dean Michael Reid and HHP students Miles Cooper and Emily Wong.
THANK YOU for your support. Your gifts help us advance how we live, work, and play!

Proud to #StandUpAndHoller for @UF_HHP and the @UF_HHP scholarship fund on #GatorNation Giving Day! It's an honor and privilege to #PayItForward by giving back to the place and people who gave me far more than I could have ever imagined. #AllFortheGators pic.twitter.com/6MzbowKL3O— Mindy Menn (@dr_menn) February 27, 2019
