On Dec. 10, the UNLV Skatin Rebels Organization will be making a donation to the family of Nathan Valencia.
Valencia was a student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, who tragically lost his life on Nov. 19 following a charity boxing match put on by the Kappa Sigma Fraternity. Just eight days before he was set to turn 21.
“Our hearts ache for Mr. Valencia’s family, friends, and loved ones,” UNLV President Keith E. Whitfield said in a statement following the news.
The Skatin’ Rebels will donate two dollars for every “Greek Life” student who attends Friday night’s game against the Arizona State Sun Devils.
Fans who are attending the game that are not part of “Greek Life” can contribute as well. There will be a donation box just outside the rink that fans and supporters can place their donations in.
