Student leaders, including business junior Andy Koesterman, challenge the UC and Greater Cincinnati community to climb Nipper Stadium steps on Saturday, May 21 in order to raise funds for local at-risk youth.

Andy Koesterman, Carl H. Lindner Honors-PLUS student and leader of the Proudly Pennies campaign, leads efforts to raise funds for Cincinnati Public Schools children experiencing homelessness. During the first-ever Nippert Stadium Steps Challenge on Saturday, May 21, participants will climb all the steps in the lower bowl of the stadium to support Zoo-Mates, a partnership among the UC Center for Community Engagement, Project Connect and the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens. Zoo-Mates will pair current UC students with local at-risk youth to make a positive influence in the children’s lives. “The Stadium Steps Challenge is a terrific opportunity for UC students, staff, faculty, alumni and friends to support student philanthropists who are making a difference in our community,” says Koesterman.
