UVA continued the fundraising efforts for Mark this weekend with their "Hoo's for Herzlich 94" campaign. Sponsored by the UVA Student Council and the "Hoo Crew", students and fans were able to donate to Mark's cause and raise money to be donated to Uplifting Athletes. The UVA players also took part by sacrificing their per diem for the week. A pretty amazing gesture from the program.

"As captains, we got together and were like, 'What's the easiest way to come up with a donation that's not going to require everybody to bring money?' " Clark said. "These are college kids that we're talking about."

This latest installment by UVA brings the donations to Uplifting Athletes to $92,031.49, very close to their goal of $100,000 in 2009.

Here's to getting to that $100,000 mark. Thank you to all of you who have donated and aided in Mark's treatment and recovery.
