ND Day postponed due to COVID-19
Observer Staff Report | Monday, March 23, 2020
Notre Dame Day will be postponed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty across the nation and world, the ND Day team said in an email.
The annual event was set for April 26 to 27 and provides an opportunity for student groups and causes to fundraise for a significant portion of their annual budget. People may donate to causes individually, and for every $10 an organization receives, the cause will receive a portion of the College Funds which amounts to a $1.2 million pot.
Organizations across campus compete to raise money while a 29-hour live broadcast tells the stories of students, faculty, staff, alumni and associates of Notre Dame around the world.
“Notre Dame Day is an annual celebration of all the ways the Notre Dame family lives out our mission to be a force for good in the world,” ND Day organizers said in an email.
While the coordinators are in the process of scheduling a future date for the annual event, they have not yet set a formal date and will make an announcement as soon as they make the decision.
“While the date of Notre Dame Day has changed, the desire for us to join together as a community has not,” the team said.
“Each day, we will share a number of segments in order to bring a little bit of the Notre Dame spirit into your home,” coordinators said.
