We are proud to partner with the Drake University women’s basketball program to celebrate CHARACTER COUNTS! Day with Drake Women’s Basketball! Each year, we pack the Knapp Center with more than 5,000 students for a home game to celebrate good character, health, and wellness.
The game will take place at 11 a.m. on Friday, December 8th, 2023. New this year, we are offering a FREE t-shirt for every registered attendee! Your school must be registered by November 10th at noon to guarantee your t-shirts. Busing grants are also available and are based on the number of attendees, filled on a first-come, first served basis. The game is open to K – 8th students only.
Registration for the 2023 game has officially sold-out. If you would like to be put on the wait list for this game, please contact Megan at Megan.Wesselink@Drake.edu.
Here are a few activities to enhance the educational value of the game.
