School teacher and advocate, Jamie Mahanic, organized and hosted a United to Beat Malaria event alongside the Detroit Pistons. Her event was twofold. First, she educated the students by organizing an assembly at Wegienka Elementary in Brownstown, Michigan. The assembly hosted a local pastor that has had malaria and complete mission work in Africa. He taught the students and staff about his experience, how malaria is spread, and the importance of malaria nets. The second part of the event included attending a Detroit Pistons basketball game. Since the Detroit Pistons team has historically supported United to Beat Malaria including having former players like Anthony Tolliver donate nets for plays made, the Pistons were generous enough to donate $10 back from each ticket sold. The Wegienka Elementary school earned $1,300 total from this event in 2017.
Mullets Against Malaria is a fundraiser undertaken by the Gentlemen of St. Edward’s Hall dorm at the University of Notre Dame around Homecoming Season. It’s a day where the Gentlemen of the Hall sport the legendary hairstyle of the 80’s, the mullet, to raise awareness on campus and join forces with United to Beat Malaria to fight the spread of a disease. Through creativity and the power of alliteration, the group settled on the idea of cutting mullets for residents as a way to encourage donation to the fight against malaria. In 2016, they even had United to Beat Malaria Champion Ruth Riley, general manager for the San Antonio Stars and former WNBA player for the Atlanta Dream, join them to buzz heads in person. In 2017, its third year of existence, the Mullets Against Malaria fundraiser generated $8,339 in just under 10 days!
