GREENSBORO, N.C. –  UNC Greensboro Athletics and Triad Financial Advisors (TFA) have teamed up this season in support of premature newborns and their mothers through the March of Dimes. As partners in the “Points for Preemies” promotion, TFA will donate $1.00 to the March of Dimes for each point scored at home this season by the men’s basketball team.

“Everyone loves a success story and cheering for the underdog,” said Patrick Rush, CEO of TFA. “The March of Dimes has long fought for the ultimate underdogs, and that’s babies born entirely too premature.  My daughter was born at 26 weeks weighing only 1.5 pounds. She has a special relationship with Coach Miller and loves UNCG basketball, so this felt like a fantastic way for TFA to show our support.”

The next opportunity for the Spartans to add to the donation total is this Sunday, December 15 vs. NC State at 3:00 p.m. inside Greensboro Coliseum.
