Purdue Athletes Life Success Program (PALS)

Since 2012, the Purdue Boilermaker Half-Marathon & 5K has raised over $120,000 for the Purdue Athletes Life Success Program, better known as PALS. This free summer camp gives children in Tippecanoe County, aged 8-14, an experience with lifetime benefits.

These children come from families with incomes at or below federal poverty guidelines. PALS is structured around four character pillars: respect, responsibility, caring, and courage. The curriculum includes STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), computer programming, financial literacy, dance, art, videography, photography, judo, nutrition, swimming, career development, service learning, and select special events.
