The UNB Ironmen rugby tradition would not be sustainable without the generous financial support provided by you, the RFC alumni. This is truly a grass roots organization which counts on small donations from lots of former Ironmen to support the many initiatives listed below
“Rugby at UNB continues to thrive. The significant support that we receive from our Alumni has been and continues to be the cornerstone of our program. Our 2013 Thanksgiving Reunion weekend was a testament to the strength that comes from our Alumni and we are hoping to build on that even further when gather once again on college field for the 2018 Reunion Oct 5th – 7th . As the school year winds down the players and coaches look forward to the arrival of a fresh crop of high school players next fall. These new players will become part of the UNB Ironmen Rugby Football Club and in the process learn that Rugby at UNB is more than just a game.”
Please take a moment and consider making a gift to support UNB Ironmen Rugby. Your financial support will go towards a number of initiatives including:
- The Toks Akpata scholarship which funds an annual scholarship to the best club man in honor of Toks Akpata. This award has been issued for the past twelve years to a current player voted by the coaches
