BLUEFIELD — The Bluefield State College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) recently raised $102 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation by selling Make-A-Wish stars Oct. 5-12 as part of the NCAA Division II Week of Wishes Campaign.

The campaign is an integral part of the overall Division II “Life in Balance” philosophy.

Division II was the first NCAA division to sponsor a division-wide community-service campaign, and during 2010-11, Division II institutions and student-athletes raised more than $405,000 for the Foundation.

Over the past seven years, the Division II SAAC has raised more than $1.9 million, helping to grant many wishes for courageous children.
