Our Marda’s House and Block education programs are funded through the Rebound Foundation’s annual Rebound Challenge fundraiser as well as through charitable gifts from local and national donors.
Join us as we work to end the cycle of abuse.
In 2017, Dana Ford, then head men’s basketball coach at Tennessee State University, championed the first Rebound Challenge Game. Students, local businesses and fans alike joined in to bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence and to pledge their support for The Rebound Foundation and Marda’s House. Dana, now head men’s basketball coach at Missouri State University, will proudly continue The Rebound Challenge for the Bears.
Our desire is to have The Rebound Challenge take place in schools and universities across the nation. Funds raised through the events would benefit The Rebound Foundation and the hometown teams non-profit of choice, tackling domestic violence in their local community. Contact us to get involved.
How does The Rebound Challenge work?
Supporters are encouraged to pledge $1 (or more) per rebound the Bears make during their Rebound Challenge Game.
Every donation allows us to give safe homes to women and mothers who were courageous enough to escape a life of abuse and the opportunity to educate more youth on healthy and unhealthy relationships.
This year’s Rebound Challenge Game presented by Old Missouri Bank took place on Sunday February 6th vs. Loyola. During the Rebound Challenge Game, The Missouri State Bears grabbed 26 rebounds. Through combined efforts from sponsors and donors, we successfully met our goal and raised over $27,000 through our Pledge It campaign and over $43,000 in sponsorships.
The total amount raised during the 2022 Rebound Challenge Game & the Tip-Off event was over $75,000!
Thank you for your support!
