Dear Donor,

The 25th Annual Sherman-Steichen Memorial Race went smoothly just a short week ago and was a great success! We wanted to reach out to say thank you for your contribution towards the race! Your generosity helped us to give a scholarship to two current students in the Creighton Pharmacy and Physical Therapy programs and provide race day materials. Additionally, your gift helps us to continue to honor Nick Steichen and Brett Sherman in and throughout our community here at Creighton.

Thank you so much for helping us make a difference! We look forward to working with you in the future.

Best regards,
