Duke Raises $20K for Children's Hospital

Posted October 17, 2007

— The sky was the limit when it came to raising money for Duke Children's Hospital Wednesday.

Duke University students and administrators, including athletic director Joe Alleva, got a chance to skydive with members of the U.S. Army's Golden Knights.

Each participant was attached to a member of the Knights' parachute team for the tandem jumps from planes 13,500 feet above the campus.

The event was sponsored by Duke Army ROTC.
