UB launches crowdfunding campaign to help support women’s basketball


BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The University at Buffalo Division of Athletics and Blue and White Fund have jointly announced a new crowdfunding campaign to support the UB women's basketball team. This is the second year UB is offering a crowdfunding campaign, giving donors, alumni and fans an avenue to provide direct support to the program. 

The main purpose of this campaign is to raise money for a Firstbeat Sports System, RPX recovery boots and a Bowflex BXE216 Elliptical. These items will be integral in the development of our student-athletes and the overall student-athlete experience.

Firstbeat Sports System: It is the complete solution to optimize training load and recovery. Firstbeat Sports delivers the scientific insights needed to offer personalized training guidance. It gives us the physiological information to optimize performance, reduce injuries, and fast-track player development. These insights are derived from heart rate and heart rate variability data. This will unlock the power of individualized training and recovery guidance.

RPX Recovery Boots Complete System: RecoveryPump is the ultimate sports recovery equipment for muscular pain and body aches. The research behind the portable compression system has shown it to be a fast, simple and effective way to relieve workout fatigue and bolster recovery time. With the physically taxing season that we play, we would use these on the road in order to help our players recover as quickly as possible. These will be extremely beneficial to the overall physical performance of each student athlete.

Bowflex BXE216 Elliptical: Sporting a 35 lb flywheel system, this elliptical will be convenient for us to roll out to practice each day. The Switch Select Cushioning System will give us the ability to keep our conditioning up throughout season without the constant pounding on the hardwood. This machine allows us to create specific workouts to tailor to the output that we want the athlete to achieve while using it.

In order for us to accomplish this, we need help from OUR VILLAGE. We are asking YOU to give what you can to help our program sustain itself as we move onward and upward to reach higher heights. Now that history has been made, tradition must follow. Be a part of that tradition!
