Chestnut Hill College students participating in the 2022 College Challenge.

The College Challenge is an award-winning program and an exciting way for students to plan, promote, and execute virtual and grassroots campus outreach efforts aimed at registering new organ, tissue, and cornea donors. Participating student groups will keep track of their efforts and submit a scorecard for their chance at first, second, and third prizes, as well as a prize for the most newly registered donors.

Gift of Life College Challenge has won multiple awards from PRSA (Public Relations Society of America) Philadelphia chapter.
