Over the top

Mizzou’s student United Way organization administered a resounding whupping to the student club at Kansas during the annual MU vs. KU Student Challenge to raise money for United Way. MU students raised $2,169 during the 48-hour event in mid-November — far ahead of the $287 that the Jayhawkers collected.

It must have been an omen, because several weeks later the University of Missouri United Way campaign met and surpassed the campaign goal for 2009. The goal was set at an ambitious $620,000; as of Dec. 7, the campaign had raised $631,205 and money was still coming in.

But there’s still time to make a donation and help MU’s campaign set new records. Contributions can be sent to Abby Gilpin in Business Services at 311 Jesse Hall.
